Little nephew (8yr old) loves these books

Solid entry in a great series

The Littles are a family of tiny people, only a couple of inches tall. They're just like you and me, except for that they have furry tails. While living in the spaces between the walls of the Biggs, a normal-sized family, they always seem to run into some kind of trouble, and this book is no exception. There's a mysterious critter that seems to be running around the house, but no Little can get a bead on exactly what it is. A dangerous refrigerator and a housecat present some special challenges. And the entire time, a storm is brewing, a storm so big that it might threaten the Little's very existence. These are terrific little books for children, primarily because they're just so much fun to read. The Littles have to deal with a lot of problems that come about, not only because of their size, but because they don't have the types of support services that a larger community provides. In many ways, they're like a pioneer family on the strange frontier of a giant house. Author Peterson has taken full advantage of this situation, and the obstacles they encounter are always imaginatively presented and thrillingly solved. The characters employ good problem-solving techniques for the problems at hand. Don't let the mediocre movies about tiny people (the Borrowers, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Stuart Little) dampen your enthusiasm for this concept. Peterson's creations are more imaginative and better done than any of those films.

Great story for 2nd Graders

This book is that follows the true Littles story. This is very helpful for those children who need to read small amounts and retain the information for reivews, etc. Our school (a Christian school) promotes this series as one that the children can read not only from an academic standpoint, but also from a interesting perspective for the children. This particular book also teached the children about weather - effects, results, and what action to take. I hope all who purchase it for their children enjoy it.
