The Selkie's Song|The Opal Dream Cave



The lacquered shell of a walnut became Thumbelina’s cradle, the blue petals of violets her mattress, and a rose petal her cover. Here she slept at night; in the daytime, she played on the table by the window. Her mother had put a bowl of water there with a garland of flowers around it. In this tiny lake there floated a tulip petal, on which Thumbelina could row from one side of the plate to the other, using two white horsehairs as oars; it was an exquisite sight.— Thumbelina, by Hans Christian Andersen.Artwork by Arlene Graston.
