Hey there! Welcome to "Fairy Tale and Folktale Fridays," a new feature on my blog where I discuss about some fairy tales and folktales I have read throughout the years.
Type: Fairy Tale
Country of Origin: Denmark
Main Character Hero or Heroine: Heroine
I've always loved this fairy tale as it was interesting reading about a small girl trying to make it to the dangerous world by herself and meeting up with various animals along the way. Although I wish that there was an interpretation of "Thumbelina" that fleshed out the character a bit more, I am satisfied with this story about a small girl trying to make it out in the dangerous world.
1. How would you feel if you were only a few inches tall?
I would be a bit scared myself, since that would mean that I have to deal with people who are very large and who might accidentally hurt me due to my small size. But, it would be cool to be able to sneak into small places that I couldn't before!
2. Would you like to become a fairy?
Well, I would love to have powers like to fly and to turn things into something beautiful!
