Recommends it for: folks already enthralled by the Littles
I guess I didn't read this installment of the adventures of the Littles when I was a kid because it wasn't published until 1991. I didn't have many ties to children's literature at that time in my life.

I had forgotten that the Littles have tails! I wonder why the author decided that they needed tails...

The beginning of this book is especially exciting. I was gasping aloud. (Really!) By the end of the book, however, the plot had become predictable and I had a good idea how things were going to en...more

I used to love the whole series when I was younger. I remember reading the series to my great aunt at night before she passed away. I highly recommend this series to anyone. Child, pre-teen, teen, or adults would like it. It's a book that no matter your age you would enjoy it. Happy reading!
There was a flatness to this book that made it cumbersome to read. With too many characters and not enough character development, this story was predictable and uninviting. As a piece for young readers, perhaps this book had merit, but overall it was not one I would recommend.

I never saw this one before, and for a moment I didn't think I'd like a story that was kind of about the Littles, but really not about them at all.

Even though it took me a little bit to get into this book, I was glad I did. In this book we meet Winkie and Tip, orphans who live with the Trash Tinies. I loved learning about their past, and their amazing adventure as they tried to find out who they really are.

Great book!
I liked the literary style of this book, the new characters, and the use of an epilogue and a prologue. I would love to see more of Winkie and Tip in future books!
One of the best of this series.
