The following tales are similar to the Hans Christian Andersen original fairy tale, Thumbelina. The tale is classified under Aarne-Thompson 700: Tom Thumb. I have included the English language tales of this type which have been gathered by D. L. Ashliman in his guide to folktales: A Guide to Folktales in the English Language and from other sources. I have also included tales from other tale types when I have deemed them appropriate to my purpose. The tales come from many cultures and are similar to the Thumbelina story in various ways. I have placed the tales in alphabetical order with a small discussion and links to other pages which have texts of the stories if a text is available on the world wide web.
