Hop-o'-My-Thumb (Hop-on-My-Thumb), or Hop o' My Thumb, also known as Little Thumbling or Little Poucet is one of the eight fairytales published by Charles Perrault in Histoires ou Contes du temps passé (1697). Hop-o'-My-Thumb is the youngest of seven children in a poor woodcutter's family, and his greater wisdom compensates for his smallness of size. When the children are abandoned by their parents, he finds a variety of means to save his life and the lives of his brothers, eventually confronting a scary ogre. This tale has its origins in French medieval folklore and is now world-renowned thanks to Perrault and Robert Samber's translation; it is here brought to life by Katie Haigh.
