I remember enjoying these books years ago. My son who is four has really enjoyed reading chapter books at night. So I bought this one, and he loved it. The Littles are tiny people with tails. They live in the walls of the home of the Biggs. The Littles use odds and ends that the Biggs no longer need to build an elevator, eat etc. In this story the Biggs go on vacation and the Littles have new big people living in the home. For three weeks the Newcombs don't take out the garbage and mice come. There is excitement and bravery. This is an adorable book. We are buying more. Enjoy.


Behind the walls of the George W. Bigg home live the Littles, a family whose tallest member measures six inches. Like the Borrowers (a favorite with me in childhood), the Littles get their living by appropriating whatever they need from the giants whose home their share. ....Delightful! An exciting story that has plenty of action without being overly frightening. I look forward to reading this one to my small nephew.

The Littles

Hi! My name is Cindy. I am nine years old. I just finished reading a book called The Littles, and it is by John Peterson. The book is about a little family that lives inside the wall of Mr. Bigg's house. They look a lot like humans, but they are small and they have tails. Everyday they go to the kitchen and get some food that are leftovers from Mr. Bigg's dinner. Those in the family are the grandfather, grandmother, Tom the brother, Lucy the sister, mom and dad. One evening Mr.Bigg wanted to go for a vacation, and he wanted to rent his house. For one week a lady named Lizzy and a man named Mr. Newcomb rented Mr. Bigg's house. These people didn't eat much so the Littles wanted them to leave. They wanted Mr. Bigg to come back from his vacation. They had a plan to get rid of these people. The plan was to scare them into thinking that the house had mice. ...I liked this book because it is a chapter book. I want everyone to read this book. I give this book five stars because it is so good.

a fantastic series for kids

I loved reading "The Littles" when I was a child. I am now enjoying them all over again with my 5 year old! He wants to know if they live in our walls too!

Fun, Imaginative, Adventurous

The Littles captured my child's interest when we discovered them when was almost seven years old. He loves their exciting adventures. He started writing (dictating to me) his own stories/adventures about the Littles since they are not being written fast enough for his appetite. At age eight, he still loves reading the Littles books and is now a good enough reader to read them by himself (and he continues to add to the adventures he's creating for them in his own stories). He's always asking if there are any new books on the Littles.
