Publisher's Summary

Tom Thumb is a character of English folklore, and a classic fairy tale. The History of Tom Thumb was the first fairy tale printed in English.

Tom is no bigger than his father's thumb, and his adventures include being swallowed by a cow, tangling with giants, and becoming a favourite of King Arthur.

She provides Tom with an oak leaf hat, a shirt of cobweb, a doublet of thistledown, stockings of apple rind, and shoes of mouse's skin...
