The year of 1625, it was, when a single shilling changed my life. That shilling got me taken off to London, where they hid me in a pie, of all things, so I could be given as a gift to the new queen of England.
They called me the queen's dwarf, but I was more than that. I was her friend, when she had no one else, and later on, when the people of England turned against their king, it was me who saved her life. When they turned the world upside down, I was there, right at the heart of it, and this is my story.
Inspired by a true story, and spanning two decades that changed England for ever, The Smallest Man is a heartwarming tale about being different, but not letting it hold you back. About being brave enough to take a chance, even if the odds aren't good. And about how, when everything else is falling apart, true friendship holds people together.
The Smallest Man is a very absorbing, gripping piece of historical fiction set in a fascinating period of English history
This is a fascinating story using some historical facts about a man I knew nothing about. This was a recommendation by my book club, it led me to look at the paintings of The Smallest man, as well as some of his known history, his real history is very interesting, so thanks to the author for bringing this man to my attention.
