Elderberry Tales

Tom Thumb

May 18, 2020

In this classic English Fairy Tale, a couple wishes for a child, even if he is only as big as thumb - and that is exactly what they get. It isn't easy being small in a big person's world! Listen to how Tom gets into - and out of - trouble.

This version of the classic tale appeared in the Beacon Second Reader, by James H. Fassett, published in 1914 and available here through Project Gutenberg.
