This is definitely as much a language questions as much as it is a fairy tale question; this clue becomes a lot easier if you know that “thumb” is “pouce” in French and “pulgar” in Spanish. Thumbelina is a well-known Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale about a tiny girl, named Thumbelina, and her adventures. It was adapted into an animated film in 1994 that was a box office flop for Warner Brothers.
