Thumbelina - 1952

Music Written By: Frank Loesser
Lyrics Written By: Frank Loesser

Current Publisher: Frank Music Corp.

From Hans Christian Andersen. Copyrighted September 17, 1952.

Susan Loesser recalled that her father had little regard for the song and "referred to 'Thumbelina' as an insignificant little ditty, not a real song. Whenever he wanted to make a point about a cheap song, his own or someone else's, he would mention 'Thumbelina'. He never gave himself credit for writing exactly what the scene required: a charming 'little ditty' meant to entertain a small child."
