Growing up is a big deal, especially when you're still waiting to do the growing part! It's the elation of hitting a home run, the joy of ice-cream trucks, and the delight of revenge on lunch-money bullies. But it's also the disappointment of being too small to ride that ride and the frustration of being picked last. Complemented by Mike Reed's energetic artwork, award-winning author and poet Jaime Adoff effortlessly channels the hijinks, hardships, and high hopes of the little guy in this fresh, funny, and uplifting poetry collection that reminds us all what it's like to be small.
