3. Thumbling (not Tom Thumb)
This week we follow the adventures of adrenaline junkie Thumbling as he meets some disreputable types, briefly falls into a life of crime and has some unfortunate dealings with hungry animals.
Hang about, is this not the Tom Thumb we know and love? We explain the difference between Tom Thumb and Thumbling and other little man European legends and even recount the story of Tom Thumb himself.
And finally we pick the next three stories we'll be exploring.
