Thumbelina, Hardback Book

Thumbelina Hardback

Illustrated by Petra Brown

Part of the First Reading Level 4 series



The classic fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen retold with simple text to help beginner readers develop reading stamina.

Thumbelina is pretty and kind - and as tiny as a thumb.

Flowers tower above her and birds can carry her on their backs.

When she's abandoned in the outside world, she faces some very big adventures indeed.

Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.
