Series: First Reading Level 4
By Zanna Davidson
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.
Zanna Davidson has written over fifty books for children, both non-fiction and fiction. Her stories for children include the Fairy Ponies, Fairy Unicorns and Billy and the Mini Monsters series for Usborne. She lives in the countryside in a cottage on the edge of some deep, dark woods with two small boys and her scruffy black dog, Fred.
