I Am Small

I Am Small


Text & illustrations: Qin Leng


Mimi doesn’t think being short – actually, the shortest – is a laughing matter. All she can see is the downside: at home, at school, around the neighbourhood… People try to point out the advantages of her height. But no one really gets it. Although, come to think of it, there are some perks to awaiting a growth spurt!

    “Exquisite and sweet!”

    Catherine Trudeau, Plus on est de fous, plus on lit (Radio-Canada)


    “This book is one of my true favorites for its delicate illustrations mixing ink and watercolor. I especially like the way Mimi is portrayed and drawn... a child with short hair and loose pants. It is a representation of a little girl you rarely see in children’s picture books.”

    Stéphanie Pelletier, Les p’tits mots-dits
