Tom Thumb, or Hop o' My Thumb, also known as Little Thumbling, Little Thumb, or Little Poucet (French: Le petit Poucet), is one of the eight fairytales published by Charles Perrault, now world-renowned. The small boy defeats the ogre. This type of fairytale, in the French oral tradition, is often combined with motifs, similar to Hansel and Gretel; one such tale is The Lost Children. The story was first published in English as Little Poucet in Robert Samber's 1729 translation of Perrault's book, "Histories, or Tales of Past Times". In 1764, the name of the hero was changed to Little Thumb. In 1804, William Godwin, in "Tabart's Collection of Popular Stories for the Nursery", retitled it Tom Thumb, a term that was common in the 16th century, referring to a tiny person.
