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

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

— Publishers Weekly

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

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

— School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW
