Description


It's not easy being small, but in Brad Sneed's lovely new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's Thumbelina, at least life is full of adventure. Soon after being born from a fiery red flower, Thumbelina is kidnapped from home and pursued by many suitors, including a horrible toad, a bumbling beetle, and a grumpy mole--until the plucky heroine finds a true love who fits her just right.
Sneed's rich, detailed watercolors are a true standout, illustrating the animals and natural world with remarkable realism and vibrancy. The story, lighthearted and lively, has a simple text that keeps the elegant flavor of the original tale, yet is perfect for a picture book audience.
Brad Sneed's fresh look at a well-loved fairy tale is simply sumptuous!

About the Author


Sam Garcia was born in Gava, Spain in 1978. After inheriting his passion for indie comics from his father, Sam worked for 15 years as a graphic designer in the comic industry. Sam's first book, "Bonjour Paris" (released by Spanish publisher Dibbuks), led him to take up cartooning full-time. In 2009, he met publisher Thierry Joor and author Sophie Ansel, forming a very effective partnership. Their book, "Lunes Birmanes," published by Editions Delcourt in France in 2012, has been highly acclaimed by the public and critics alike. Sam also works in the videogame industry, creating illustrations and designs under the name "SamCube."

Brad Sneed has illustrated almost twenty picture books, some of which he has also written. His titles include Deputy Harvey and the Ant Cow Caper; Aesop's Fables; and When Wishes Were Horses. He lives in Kansas.
