A Jewish Thumbelina

Now it is time for another retelling.  The story, “Katanya,” is a Jewish story from Turkey that is very similar to “Thumbelina.”  I like both stories, but find “Thumbelina” much more interesting.  “Thumbelina” also had a few more negative implications to take out, but the fact cannot be ignored that both stories had the problem of love at first sight before I retold them.  That is a pet peeve of mine that I will always take out of fairy tales I retell.
