"Thumbelina"

Thumbelina is one of my favourite children stories.
But it's difficult to draw such a special situation with so many good takes before. 
So, I chosen to draw thumbelina, simply, floating down the river and listening to the birds beautiful song.

This is a happier Thumbelina. I like her a lot. She is light and free on her leaf.
Really nice illustration.

And you did a great job--she's sweet & there's a wonderful sense of floating on that leaf.
