While we’re on the subject of gt children’s books, here are some I read as a kid and really liked.
The Lambkins – Returning from a gallery where his paintings are on display, high-school student Kyle stops to help a woman with a flat tire. As he reaches for the jack, he finds himself stuffed into the trunk and injected with some sort of formula. He wakes up to discover that he is the size of a Coke bottle and trapped in a dollhouse with three other shrunken kids and a shrunken dog, all prisoners of the demented Mrs. Shepherd.
The Adventures of Shrinkman – When Danny Marin isn’t playing basketball, he spends hours drawing Shrinkman, his favorite comic-book superhero, or watching Shrinkman movies. His hero can shrink to the size of a bug. But, whoa—wait. Suddenly, Danny finds himself shrinking, too!
Castaways in Lilliput –
When their life raft at last comes to ground, Jim, Peggy, and bossy Ralph rejoice. But this island is not like the world they left behind. The entire island is filled with miniature villages, roads, even cities with skyscrapers. The kids would love to play with the doll-sized vehicles and houses … until they discover that the tiny buildings have all-too-alive tiny people who live in them.
Castle in the Attic –
William has just received the best present of his life—an old, real-looking stone and wooden model of a castle, with a drawbridge, a moat, and a fingerhigh knight to guard the gates. It’s the mysterious castle his housekeeper has told him about, and even though William is sad she’s leaving, now the castle is his! William can’t wait to play with the castle—he’s certain there’s something magical about it. And sure enough, when he picks up the tiny silver knight, it comes alive in his hand!
