Thumb Alena Illustrated Novel Project 

If you’ve heard the version of Thumbelina with a tiny, obedient, and helpless girl at the mercy of toads, who awaits rescue from one child marriage after another, drifts without aim through the woods, and is unable to do anything but be beautiful, then you haven’t heard the real story.

Since 2016, Claire Luce Baldwin has been creating an illustrated novel reimagining Thumbelina as an illustrated epic for young adult audiences. The manuscript is now in its third draft, and Patreon supporters can access exclusive excerpts, as well as merchandise and even original paintings.
