|Thumbelina's "birth" via the magical flower.
(The detail on her skirt is amazing!)
|Thumbelina: Mother, please... Are there
any stories about little people?
Nighttime storytelling session between Thumbelina and her mum. (Note: That was one *heck* of a fall from the nose to the hand - but I guess being that small and easily put into trouble Thumbelina's built more resilient.)
|Thumbelina: What are those?
Mother: They're wings, Thumbelina. These are fairies. And fairies have wings so they can fly.
Thumbelina: Mother, have you ever seen a fairy?
Mother: I thought I did, once.
|Thumbelina feels insecure about herself because of her size.
Thumbelina: I suppose it works best if two people are about the same size.
|Thumbelina plays pretend with the fairy drawings in the book. She's the most adorable type of dreamer.|
|Thumbelina: I wonder if there really are such things are fairies.|
|Thumbelina: Tell me about the fairy court.
Is there... a prince?
Cornelius: (cheeky smile) Yes.
Thumbelina: He must be terribly handsome.
Cornelius: Oh, he is.
Thumbelina: Strong and brave.
Cornelius: None like him.
Thumbelina: I would love to meet the fairy prince.
Cornelius: Oh, I'll tell him.
|The duet. Sweet!|
|Grundel the toad falls in love at first... sound? (I guess Thumbelina should've kept her mouth shut and let Cornelius do the singing, eh?)|
|Already exchanging gifts and promises.
Thumbelina: Do not forget me.
