The dam where Thumbelina and her father live is breaking due to the rising waters in the nearby pond. Father worries that when spring comes, the melting snows will rise the water higher than ever causing the dam to crack and water to flow over the meadow, thus drowning the little people who live there. Father believes he is too old to take on the journey to find the prince and warn him and his people, so he asks his daughter to go instead. Thumbelina agrees, but in her journey she mets a great deal of characters, both good and evil. To someone not bigger than a human's thumb, dealing with the evil intentions of Mona, a greedy mouse, will prove to be a big challenge. Written by

Mm! I just love the smell of dirt in the morning.
It's so dark in here I can barely see.
Ooh, you'll get used to it, my dear. You'll come to love the dark as I do. You find all sorts of interesting things in the ground, for instance, look at this.
[there's a swallow lying dead on the ground; Thumbelina gasps
Now how- however did a bird get down here?
Birds are not the smartest of creatures, you know.
[runs to the swallow's side
Oh, poor thing. He looks like the swallow who sang to me once ...
