Ten-year-old Stuart is very short for his age. His surname is Horten. Yes, he gets called Shorty Shorten (his parents are very clever people, but not very sensible people). However being short is soon the last thing on Stuart’s mind when he and his parents move to their old town of Beeton and he is swept up in a quest to find his uncle’s old workshop – his famous magician, and also very short, uncle, that is . . . The first children’s fiction novel by Lissa Evans, this is a delightful, quirky adventure that will appeal to all fans of Roald Dahl.
