Julia is very short for her age, but by the end of the summer run of The Wizard of Oz, she'll realize how big she is inside, where it counts. She hasn't ever thought of herself as a performer, but when the wonderful director of Oz casts her as a Munchkin, she begins to see herself in a new way. As Julia becomes friendly with the poised and wise Olive and with her deeply artistic neighbor, Mrs. Chang, Julia's own sense of self as an artist grows.

What does Tara Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator's delivery added to the warmth and humor of the story. I bookmarked many places to revisit.

Any additional comments?

Entertaining, heartwarming, humorous and brilliantly performed. You don't have to be short to thoroughly enjoy this book.
