Thumbelina

First Reading Level 4
Thumbelina

  • 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.
