Description

Seamus would give anything to be taller! One day, while playing dress-up in his mother’s closet, he finds a way to reach new heights.

With his mother’s high-heeled shoes on, Seamus can suddenly reach everything that was once too high: the top-floor elevator button, the chocolate milk in the fridge, the TV remote and that horrid picture of him as a baby. But when Seamus encounters problems that can’t be solved from a great height, he has to admit that sometimes being small just isn’t so bad.

Acclaimed picture book author Heather Hart-Sussman brings a light touch to this nuanced story about acceptance, resourcefulness and love, complemented by the humor and beauty in Milan Pavlovic’s colorful paintings of Seamus’s world — where there are times to be tall and times to be small.

Editorial Reviews

Readers will enjoy Seamus' solution to his conundrum as much as they will illustrator Pavlovic's cartoonlike pictures … The resulting combination of text and image conspires to offer a story that is short, but big in satisfaction.

— Booklist

This familiar-seeming tale about being small in a world built for the tall takes an unexpected and rewarding turn.

— Publishers Weekly

A clever and very funny picture book about living life on one’s own terms.
