Justine is the smallest kid at school. Everyone calls her just Teenie. Nothing seems to fit her, not her clothes, her house, or the rides at the carnival. Then she meets the mysterious Madame Flora and is granted her wish to grow. The surprising result leads Justine to see her small size from a new point of view.

Filled with wry humor and appealing illustrations, Just Teenie is for all those children who just can’t wait to be big. Whether they are lifted by a magic vine, or their imaginations, Just Teenie is sure to raise young readers and listeners to new heights!

About the Author:

Susan Meddaugh was born and raised in Montclair, New Jersey. She graduated from Wheaton College, where she studied French literature and fine arts. After working briefly with an advertising agency in New York, she moved to Boston and worked at a publishing company for ten years, first as a designer, then art editor, and finally as art director. While there, she did the illustrations for GOOD STONES (Houghton Mifflin) by Anne Epstein, and then decided to strike out on her own as a freelance illustrator and creator of children's books. Since that time, Susan has written and illustrated many popular books for children, including MARTHA SPEAKS, which was chosen as a NEW YORK TIMES Best Illustrated Book for 1992. In 1998 she was awarded the New England Book Award, given by the New England Booksellers Association to recognize a body of work. Her work also was acknowledged with a New York Times Best Illustrated Award. She lives in Sherborn, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Justine doesn't ever seem to get any taller. She is frustrated by her size, crying that the whole world doesn't fit! In a scene reminiscent of the movie Big, Teenie approaches mysterious Madame Flora's booth at a carnival with one wish: to grow. When the woman gives her a box, she is disappointed to discover that it only holds a plant. But the plant begins to grow uncontrollably and begins to display a fondness for wrapping the youngster in a tangle of vines, lifting her up to the sky, where she can see things a little bit differently. Children will identify with the small protagonist's plight and will appreciate her elevated status as she uses the large vines to help all of the neighbors. This story of empowerment takes Teenie from being too small to be noticed to being an important part of her community. The artwork is classic Meddaugh–bright color washed into sharp outlines of people and things. The story begins with illustrations in tight boxes centered cleanly on the page. As Teenie's plant begins to grow, it overwhelms the boxes, eventually expanding onto spreads. A tender story of growth in more ways than one.–Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
