Tom Thumb: A Grimm Graphic Novel

Illustrated by Nelson Evergreen

Being no larger than a thumb means tiny Tom must face big threats on a daily basis -- even within the confines of his loving parents' cozy home. Tom's plucky fearlessness and his thirst for adventure help him outmaneuver hungry house cats and dodge deadly morsels of falling food with ease. But Tom's life is turned upside down when he leaves the relative safety of his parents' house and enters the wide world outside! Lost and alone, Tom Thumb will have to overcome colossal dangers to survive his perilous journey home.

Booklist - Kat Kan

"In this adaptation of a classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Tom Thumb, a wee lad no bigger than a thumb, lives happily with his parents until a too-close encounter with the fireplace sends him far away. In his quest to return home, Tom helps a couple of fishermen, gets swallowed by a fish, finds himself in the royal kitchen, meets the king, and decides to help the king’s knights catch a highwayman who has been terrorizing the countryside. Using his very small stature as a plus, Tom always finds a way to win. Young readers will enjoy seeing Tom use spoons, acorns, eggshells, and other items to do things that look an awful lot like skateboarding and other raucous activities. Part of the reliable Graphic Spin series, this volume, illustrated by British underground comics artist Evergreen, features bright colors and fun, cartoony art. Sonneborn uses contemporary dialogue to make the story even more appealing to younger readers. A handful of discussion questions and writing prompts make this a good classroom choice as well." - Booklist
