Staff Reviews

In the tradition of Tim Burton and Edward Gorey, Carey brings us a darkly delightful and imaginative tale of a small orphan girl in Revolution-era France. Accompanying the story are pencil illustrations of the oddities "Little" comes across, such as the unique faces, both living and waxen, of the storey's motley cast of characters. You will soon be enraptured by the macabre mood of this novel, so that you will come to treasure each page and the curiosities it brings. A work of art in every way.

“I am astounded. I am charmed. I am awaiting the manifestation of pure joy this enchanting book will be for the ages. Anne Marie Grosholtz is as tall as the human heart but her outlook is to the moon. Orphaned at a young age, this child is apprenticed to a physician whose wax modeling lends a twist of the macabre and is a precursor to Marie’s wondrous involvement with French royalty, a revolution, and museums. Complete with elucidating illustrations, Little is a bold imagining of Madame Tussaud. To be clear, I love it! I love it! I love it!”
