Tom Thumb


Tom Thumb

Today’s Throwback Thursday is the fourth in my puppet book collection from photo illustrators T. Izawa and S. Hijikata. This book features the strange fairytale world of Tom Thumb.

Published by Grosset & Dunlap.

There’s no copyright date printed in the book, but there is an inscription from the original owners of the on the inside cover,

” To Diane and Bobby

Merry Christmas 1973

Love, Mommy & Daddy”


“If only we had a son,” sighed the wife, 

“I would be content, even if he were no bigger than my thumb.”
