Try the Littles

For another series featuring tiny people.


I remember loving this book when I was younger so I was excited to share it with my daughter. I now wish I had left it as a fond memory without revisiting the book. Although the idea of tiny people living in secret in our homes and "borrowing" what they need is great fun, it just didn't hold up to my memory and did not captivate my daughter as I thought it would.
