Thumbelina is a fairy tale written by author Hans Christian Andersen first published in 1835. Thumbelina is about a tiny girl and her adventures with appearance- and marriage-minded toads, moles, and cockchafers. She successfully avoids their intentions before falling in love with a flower-fairy prince just her size.
