Title: Seamus's Short Story

Seamus is short!
But he finds a fun & creative way to get tall!
I love that this story challenges gender norms without making a big deal of it - it's not a heavy-handed "message" story.

Light, sweet, funny - this is a great family romp!

— From Zazu's Past Picks 3


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.
