A graceful little white butterfly constantly fluttered round her, and at last alighted on the leaf. Both Jacquimo and Cornelius are incapacitated by the weather: Jacquimo accidentally impales his wing on a thorn and is eventually knocked out by the extreme cold, while Cornelius falls into a lake and is frozen under the ice. Fox Tawny Sunshine Glover as Gnatty, one of the jitterbugs. Toad and her son Grundel are enchanted by Thumbelina's singing.

She wept quietly and hugged the bird. He was the angel of the flower; for a tiny man and a tiny woman dwell in every flower; and this was the king of them all. She helped a swallow to heal her wing, so they became inseparable. All of a sudden, behind a large pink petal, emerged a crowned man just a little bit larger than Thumbelina herself. Hans Christian Andersen Thumbelina There was once a woman who wished very much to have a little child, but she could not obtain her wish.

Pinkney's retelling is a little dry, but at least he does give cover credit to Andersen so many other illustrators of the stories don't. The witch told her to plant the seed in her best soil, to water her seed with her clearest water, and to give her seed some extra love. While she was on the run from the frog, a mouse welcomed her into her home. The beetle drops her without a second thought, and flies away. Thumbelina sang beautiful songs for all to hear. When the woman kisses the flower, it pops open to reveal tiny Thumbelina.
