Another fantastic book in the Sally Gardner’s Magical Children Series, about children empowered by special gifts. Once again it’s utterly charming full of feeling and very funny. This is the story of a little girl who is so tiny she fits into a handbag. Whilst minute sized she grows to be brave, strong and finds love. Very touching.

Synopsis

The Smallest Girl Ever (Book & CD) by Sally Gardner

Ruby Genie is an orphan. Everyone expects her to have the same fantastic magical powers as her famous parents did, but Ruby can't do any magic at all - or so she thinks. and feels a complete failure. Then she begins to get smaller . . . and smaller . . . and smaller. With a cast of unforgettable characters such as the self-important magician the Great Alfonso, and Aunt Hat the kindly lady conjuror who is hopeless at doing tricks, this wonderful story is full of adventure and shows how a little girl who is so tiny that she fits into a handbag can still be clever and brave and find people to love and value her.
