In a far away kingdom there is a place called the Great Meadow, the home of a beautiful little fairy named Thumbelina who is only 2 inches tall. She looks after the Great Meadow and helps to make sure that the flowers are opened each day, that the dew is sprinkled on plants and that the cobwebs are cleared away. In a nearby castle lives King Richard, whose most devoted servant, Tom Thumb, who is also only 2 inches tall. One day, Tom Thumb finds out that Medwin, the Kingâ€™s son, wants to build a gigantic castle in the Great Meadow. Tom Thumb finds Thumbelina and tells her of Medwinâ€™s plans and together they work to save the Great Meadow.
