"Thumbelina" is a literary fairy tale. "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.
Story - A kind woman who had no children, longed for a baby and would often say, “How I would love to have a baby girl, even a tiny little one.”
A beautiful fairy heard her wish one day, and gave her a little seed to plant in a flowerpot.
When the seed bloomed into a tulip, the woman saw a tiny, beautiful girl inside, no bigger than her thumb. She decided to call her Thumbelina. She was so small that she had a walnut shell for a bed and used petals as a blanket.
Then, an ugly toad fell in love with Thumbelina. One night when she was sleeping, he carried her off to his lily pad in a pond. Thumbelina was very unhappy. A swallow was passing by and saw how sad she looked, and said, “Come south with me to warmer lands.”
Young Thumbelina flew away on the swallow’s back. They flew across the seas and came to a land of sunshine. The swallow said, ” This is my home. You can live in one of the loveliest and biggest flowers.” When Thumbelina stepped inside, she found a handsome fairy, as tiny as her, in its heart.
He was the son of the king of flowers and he fell in love with Thumbelina. He asked her to marry him. So Thumbelina became queen of the flowers and the two lived happily ever after.
TOM THUMB STORY:
Once, a farmer and his wife had their first child after many years of marriage. The boy was as small as his father’s thumb. The queen of fairies came dancing and named him Tom Thumb.
One day, while Tom’s mother was making pudding, Tom, who was playing nearby, slipped inside the bowl and was drowned in the batter. He started kicking and thrashing to save himself. The movement in the pudding scared his
mother, who was unable to see Tom inside. She gave the batter away to a beggar, who later discovered little Tom inside. Tom came back from the beggar’s house and told his parents all that had happened and his mother felt very sorry for what she had done.
A few days later, a raven picked up little Tom and dropped him in the sea. A magnificent fish swallowed him. After a while, some fishermen caught the fish and gave it to King Arthur’s servants. When the servants cut the fish,
they were surprised to see Tom inside and presented him to King Arthur. The king was delighted and kept Tom who entertained everyone with his funny tricks. Later, Tom was knighted and became Sir Thomas Thumb.
One day, the queen of fairies took Tom to fairyland but by the time he returned, King Arthur and all his knights had died. Tom stayed with the new king in his palace and continued to entertain everyone with his tricks for a long time to come.
