|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Thumbelina|
|Thumbelina is a young woman no bigger than her mother's thumb. She doesn't like being the only person her size, and is thrilled when her mother tells her about fairies. Thumbelina ends up meeting the fairy prince, and they fall in love. But when Thumbelina goes outside to be with him, she is kidnapped by a frog who wants her to marry her frog son. While the fairy prince sets out to find and rescue her, Thumbelina keeps escaping and getting caught by various creatures who want her to marry them, including a grotesque beetle.
