The Big-Little Girl

Uri Orlev
AGE: 3-6

Daniella is a little girl. She`s bigger than the baby next door and bigger than the cat, but still... She`s smaller than the other kids in school and much, much smaller than her parents. One night, Daniella wakes up and discovers that she is huge - she can barely fit into her bed! She goes over to her parents` bed and... surprise! They are so tiny that she laughs out loud. Now Daniella can tyrannize them and treat them as if they were the children. Next day, Daniella sends her parents off to work and decides to stay home (because if you`re big enough, you can decide for yourself!). She finds it very scary to be all alone at home. But then she wakes up and realizes it was all just a dream!
