Sylvia Long's Thumbelina

"...[C]hildren - girls in particular - will undoubtedly delight in the happy ending where a gate fold reveals the flower-filled wedding of Thumbelina and her prince."

School Library Journal2010-06-01

Sylvia Long's Thumbelina

A jewel box of a work whose pages invite lingering.

Publishers Weekly2010-03-29

Sylvia Long's Thumbelina

The illustrator has made a lush and vivid world for her Thumbelina to inhabit.

Sylvia Long's Thumbelina

Long is best known for illustrating the spectacularly beautiful picture book An Egg Is Quiet by Dianna Aston. Her watercolors bring out the wonder of the natural world with an almost emotional intensity. Several spreads in her Thumbelina are vertical, requiring children to turn them to get a proper look, emphasizing that the book is as much a beautiful object as a story to get lost in.
