A SURVIVAL GUIDE TO GROWING UP SHORT. Part science book, part memoir--a
book for everyone concerned about looking (or feeling) different.

When veteran journalist John Schwartz took a close look at famous height studies, he made a surprising discovery: being short doesn't have to be a disadvantage! Part advice book, part memoir, and part science primer, this fascinating book explores the marketing, psychology, and mythology behind our obsession with height and delivers a reassuring message to kids of all types that they can
walk tall--whatever it is that makes them different.

Short is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
