Written and illustrated by Brianna Corr Scott
Ages 5 to 8
An accomplished artist and writer, Brianna Corr Scott was the perfect choice to offer a new interpretation of the beloved Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale “Thumbelina.” The story is about an old woman whose wish for a child is granted, in the form of a tiny girl
born inside a flower. Her poetry is hauntingly lyrical,
her illustrations ethereal and dreamlike. As with all good fairy tales, things get rather dark and moody before the conclusion, so sensitive younger readers may require some reassurance as the story progresses. An aesthetic delight, this one will become a family classic.
