The bird that Thumbelina had rescued was always sad to leave Thumbelina, but he loved to travel and promised her that he would spread her story with the world.
One day he flew to an old woman’s cottage on a small hill and sang Thumbelina’s song. The old woman immediately recognized the song as Thumbelina’s as she was Thumbelina’s long lost mother. Her loneliness was forever removed for she knew that Thumbelina was safe and living happily in the far away sun. And if the old woman missed her dear Thumbelina, she would go to her window and see a bird perched on a tree, chirping Thumbelina’s song.
