I have the complete set of the Grimm Fairy-Tales, and there are so many that I haven’t read! They are very short, as one would know, so I have decided to read each one and give them a review. Some are very vulgar, some are very cute and some don’t even make sense. Some of them are well known fairy-tales and some have never been told. Some are fairy-tales we know but are not the same because they have been downplayed for the children.
This story was super cute.
It’s about a poor family wishing for a child, even if he is the size of a thumb.
They get their wish!
In order for the family to live handsomely, the little thumb boy (Thumbling) sells himself and tells his father he will be back.
He travels the world and does some interesting things!
But will he return home, or find something else that makes him happy?
