Little People BIG LIVES_Cover_LR

This new book by Carole Lander gives voice to a range of people living with dwarfism. One of them is Warwick Davis, renowned British actor who co-founded Little People UK.

Several others profiled in the book are members of Short Statured People of Australia whose president Meredith Young agrees with Warwick Davis that this book conveys a positive message about people living with a physical difference.

Professor Ravi Savarirayan, Head of Clinical Genetics Service at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia says:

“In an age where body image seems to be so important, this book will go a long way to proving that people living with a different physique can lead normal lives and achieve their goals.”

The profiles include men and women of all ages and backgrounds. They have a variety of careers and the Fast Facts sections provide interesting information that includes –

  • Famous people in history who have been dwarfs
  • Sporting achievements in the Paralympics and World Dwarf Games
  • Artistic achievements now and in the past – actors, comedians, artists …
  • Medical conditions related to dwarfism

The book is for a  general readership. The What’s next … ? section provides an interesting way to explore topics raised in the profiles. It is highly recommended for secondary-age students as well as adults.
