###### Not Too Little – video

Read along with Norah as she reads her story Not Too Little that is included in the 2022 Share Your Story Anthology It’s a Kind of Magic, Stories and Spells by Second-Rate Sorcerers.

Not Too Little is about the youngest member of a family of sorcerers who is tired of always being told he is too little. One night when his brothers are out, he sneaks into their room to create a little magic for himself and prove once and for all that he is big enough. Of course, it doesn’t all go the way he hopes, and he must solve a series of problems before he, and the rest of the family, realises that he isn’t too little, he’s just the right size.

The anthology includes over 30 stories and poems, many of which are written by authors you’ll already know. It is published in a dyslexic friendly font and large print for visually impaired readers, and is available from Amazon.
