Based off of the Hans Christian Anderson story "Thumbelina", this reimagining puts the character of Thumbelina into a modern setting. The beginning of the novel includes a diverse set of the author's original characters and characters adapted from the Anderson story. Thus far, the novel brings a fantastical quality to a world much like the one around children today. It includes representation of disenfranchised groups of people as well as representation of the conflicts within the modern world and possible solutions. It also touches on universal themes and weaves a story that will entertain and enlighten young readers.
