The Girl of the Wish Garden

A Thumbelina Story

By Uma Krishnaswami, 1956-

This poetic tale opens when Lina, a tiny girl no bigger than a thumb, is found in a flower by her mother. Because she is so tiny, adventure and mishap easily befall her — a giant frog leaves her stranded on a lily pad, she is freed by curious fish, then pestered by crazy bugs. Lina lives by herself in the depths of a forest and as the cold of winter approaches she begins to feel lonely, until one day Lina finds an injured swallow. She revives the swallow and the two of them fly together to the garden of wishes. Uma Krishnaswami’s text captures the spirit of the luminous illustrations, creating a book that is beautiful, magical, and mysterious.
