I grew up with several similarly illustrated books at my grandparents and this was a favorite (along with several versions Cinderella). I love the unique style and Thumbelina's exotic features.

We fly back to Dubai on Wednesday morning (via a San Fransisco layover) and I enjoyed a scarce quiet day today amidst much craziness. It was good to have time to read, and do some packing in peace. Hopefully tomorrow will be similar.
love, Cait

Such absolutely darling illustrations! You're so lucky to still have books from your childhood like this. Thank you for sharing Thumbelina with us, she's a real cutie pie! :)

Oodles of hugs,
