Ellie | 4 comments Hi, I'm looking for a book I think i read in middle school so putting this as YA.

A scientist befriends a boy (who possibly had a father who did cartoon chariactures of tourists on the street). The scientist falls in love with a ballerina and shrinks her down so he can watch her dance. The boy finds out, tells his dad who goes to confront the scientist.

The boy's dad is then shrunk down. The two fall in love in their miniature world. Without spoiling the plot, the scientist gets mad and tried to withhold their food (which he had to shrink down for them). In the end the scientist shrinks himself to join then leaving the miniature world to the boy to look after for the rest of his life.

Can't seem to find anything anywhere on this book. Any help would be much appreciated!

I guess it must have been between 2000-2004 but I really cant remember. I also don't recall it being a new book as it was in my school's library,
