Description
 
This six piece wooden puzzle with applied depicts a critical scene in the life of little Tom Thumb. The color lithograph is done by H. Jannin depicts the two parents at a table by a fire with sad expressions, as the caption reveals that the mother and father have decided to "loose" Tom in the forest. The mother has her hands clasped beneath her chin and the father with a hand over his heart to convey the difficult decision they made. All the while, Little Tom is eavesdropping right behind them. The puzzle is simple and is doable for a small child. Measures 6 3/4" x 5". .
