This is the third double-page spread from my Thumbelina series. In this illustration, Thumbelina is a visitor in Mr. Mole's home (I didn't put him in there but I do have him in a sketch). She is sewing dresses with the spiders because Mr. Mole wants to marry her. Thumbelina is sad though, because she wants to leave the mole's house in the spring with her friend, the Swallow. (He is in the illustration a few entries down)

This is another illustration from my Thumbelina series. Thumbelina has an emergency! She is all alone and has no shelter from the cold winter. Field mouse comes to her rescue!
This is the excerpt from the story that correlates with the illustration:
"Looking for some shelter, Thumbelina found a hole that was the entrance to a field mouse's house. The field mouse looked at her and said, "Come in! My home is warm and you can stay with me until the winter is over."
