I seen this twice and re-watching it again, I really think its underrated, also a very rare gem of early anime too.

Story - This story is really a twist; it has elements of the story of Thumbelina base off Hans Christian Andersen but goes its own way.
A woman whose fed up of her daughter's bratty attitude went to the town's witch and ask what to do, the elderly witch gave her a book called 'Thumbelina' and told her to read it to her daughter.
When she get home, she told her daughter Mia about the story and started reading it; a few pages in the read more
