Hans Christian Anderson, retold and illustrated by Lauren Mills;
2005, Little, Brown, hardcover
This fairy tale of the little girl so named because of her tiny size is one of the most popular and enduring stories of all time. Children can identify with the plucky heroine who uses cleverness instead of size and strength to make her own way into the wide, wide world.

Enchanting details, drawn from nature, make this imaginative story come to life.
