Itty Bitty: 08/11/19

Itty Bitty

Itty Bitty by Cece Bell is about a very small dog in deed. We're talking small enough to hollow out a bone. Small enough to live inside said bone.

It's an exaggeration on the sometimes exasperating experience of being short. Sure, you can fit into small places (great if you're spelunking, or looking for alternative housing). But what about the day to day comforts of regular sized furniture. Here I am an adult, and I still find myself with my feet dangling over the edge, just missing the floor. Well, Itty Bitty's problem is a hundredfold.

The big question in this little book is how will Itty Bitty furnish his bone home? Can he find a place just for him? Can he find others like him. Surely there must be, else, where did he come from?

The short answer is yes.

Four stars
