Seamus is short, and from where he is standing, the world appears to be made for tall people.

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 Hartt-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.
