Children’s Shrinklit.October 19, 2010
There is a lot of of children’s literature involving little or shrunken characters. These stories sparked our imagination as a child and in many cases continue to do so, consciously and subconsciously. In the Netherlands we have Pinkeltje and Wiplala, in Sweden it’s Simon Small, in England you have the Borrowers. We will try over the next months to establish a list of the most important children’s shrinklit from around the world and throughout history. For adult literature we reserved a place here. If you remember a (children’s) book involving small characters we much appreciate it if you let us know so we can add it.
The children’s shrinklit list so far:
And a great website with dozens of folktales similar to Tommelise from all over the world.
