In human terms, Thelma would be seven years old. In thistle terms, she is about four inches tall; an average size for a little thistle her age. She lives with her family and many, many friends and neighbors on the ditch bank of a quiet country road.
In her journey of life, Thelma has many adventures and much to learn--just like you and me.
In this first book, Thelma experiences love, joy, disappointment, anger, jealousy, envy, fear and sorrow. She learns that one does not need to be beautiful or dainty to be special. Thelma discovers she is special because she is strong and brave.
