NO! I do NOT want to be so small! I wish I'd keep growing so I can be tall. This little boy is fed up with being so little. He wants to be as tall as his friends and his big brother. But when he loses his teddy bear up a tree, not even his new tall friend can get it back for him. Maybe with a little bit of help they can reach the bear together ... A fun and inspiring tale about learning to love who we are, no matter what size. A perfect picture book for little people who don't want to be so little! From the brilliant Laura Ellen Anderson - the author/illustrator of the brilliantly fun I Don't Want Curly Hair and the bestselling Amelia Fang series

MEDIA REVIEWS
Rhyming text and funny illustrations add to the enjoyment of this book about self-worth and self-esteem. * Irish Examiner *
This is a great book to read aloud and share, and humorous illustrations make it a book that can be read and enjoyed time and time again with lots of laughs. * Armadillo Magazine *
The humour in this book is super and very appealing, as are the rhyming couplets. Lots of the action is in the illustrations - comic pictures of children with expressive faces. The theme of being able to accept your body as it is remains current and important, as is the need for friends who are willing to help: 'We play games and laugh for the rest of the day - I'm small and she's tall and we're perfect that way.' Good fun! * Books For Keeps *
In a fit of rage, an incident occurs that can only be remedied by extra height. After exhausting and often hilarious efforts to grow taller, the protagonist meets a kindly tall friend, and together they realise they are indeed perfect just as they are * CBI Mind Yourself 2020 Reading Guide *

“A tall tale of being tiny, a teddy and terrific teamwork”

Along similar lines to Laura’s first picture book ‘I Don’t Want Curly Hair’, this one takes on an unhappiness with height (or lack of) and how being short is just not fair!
