Hop o' My Thumb is a fairy tale written by Charles Perrault. The story is about seven boys who were abandoned in the woods by their poor father. Brothers found a house where a cannibalistic giant lived and they were trapped.
The smallest of the boys, called Hop o' My Thumb tricked the giant, led the boys out, and when the giant almost caught them, he stole his magic boots. With these a whole new life for the family becomes possible.
