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. Acclaimed picture book author Heather Hart-Sussman brings a light touch to this nuanced story about acceptance, resourcefulness and love, complemented by the humour and beauty in Milan Pavlovic’s colourful paintings of Seamus’s world — where there are times to be tall and times to be small.
