Thumbelina is a fairy tale by the Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen. Thumbelina tells the story of a tiny human being. For some, the tale demonstrates Andersen's identification with the social outsider. Thumbelina was one of Andersen's earliest fairy tales and was first published in 1835. The earliest English translation is dated 1846. The tale has been adapted to various media including animated film.
