The first time, Hop-o'-My-Thumb leaves a trail of pebbles and is able to lead his brothers back home. The ogre saw Hop-o'-My-Thumb and gave him his seven-league boots so that he could go to his house quickly to fetch his valuables and so that his wife would know he was telling the truth. He came down, but from the ground, he could no longer see it no more, which concerned him greatly. Hop-o'-My-Thumb follows the trail of white pebbles that he dropped. Hop-o'-My-Thumb tells his brothers to hide behind a large rock. The ogre wakes up in the morning to discover his grave mistake, puts on his seven-league boots, and races after the boys.  This type of fairytale, in the French oral tradition, is often combined with motifs from the type 327A, similar to Hansel and Gretel; one such tale is The Lost Children. The ogre, who is tired, happens to rest close to their hiding spot. "Hop-o'-My-Thumb" was a common nickname for short people in 16th century English. The story's title character and protagonist is a seven-year-old boy who is the youngest of seven brothers. Both stories have: The truth is, Hansel and Gretel is the version that survived the best in the English speaking world.
I’ve noticed this happens a lot in stories from all eras: While Hop O’ My Thumb’s main (first?) The hero lays a trail of breadcrumbs, which thanks to the birds, does not help him get back home. The truth is that Hop-o'-My-Thumb is very intelligent.
He and his brothers become hopelessly lost in the forest and eventually arrive at the home of a child-eating ogre.
Hop-o'-My-Thumb gets up very early the next morning and goes to a brook.  Hop-o'-My-Thumb is still small. , 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". A poor woodcutter and his wife are no longer able to support their children and intend to abandon them in a forest. Hop-o'-My-Thumb and his six brothers sleep in one bed. On the way, Hop-o'-My-Thumb drops the white pebbles behind him to leave a trail back to his house. There are also some similarities between "Hop-o'-My-Thumb" and the English fairy tale "Jack and the Beanstalk". He says nothing to his brothers about what he knows. Nonetheless, almost all illustrators depict not only the titular character but also the brothers as very tiny. The second half of the story involves an ogre, which the hero outsmarts. He intends to go to the brook and gather up white pebbles again. opponents are his parents, he soon encounters a more obvious ‘baddie’ in the archetypal ogre who is almost like a metaphor for the badness of the parents. He leads his brothers towards it.
When he hears the ogre snoring, Hop-o'-My-Thumb tells his brothers to get dressed and leave the house. The ogre agrees. He then takes the seven-league boots off the sleeping ogre's feet and puts them on his own. The fact that Charles Perrault includes that information in his story points towards its origins as a folktale. But the ogre wakes up not too long after, and prepares to kill them in their slumber. It becomes very windy. When he feels a gold crown, he thinks that his drunkenness has led him to go to the bed where his daughters are by mistake. He and his family become rich as a result.
