From Booklist
Ages 6-8. This is the story of Lucy and Sarah Adams, two little people (as most midgets prefer to be called), who grew up to become part of P. T. Barnum's circus. Their story begins on the family farm. Though Lucy and Sarah are perfectly formed, they never grow. When the girls are teenagers, Barnum reads about them in the newspaper and convinces them to become attractions at his show. But the girls don't like the atmosphere, so they go off on their own, singing and acting until they save enough to go home and turn the run-down family house into a tea room. Simply told, the girls' story will be of interest to kids who always want to know about people and things that are different. One has to sympathize with illustrator Weihs. It's difficult to show children who are very small; no matter the proportion, they don't look that different from other children. Thus, the folk-style art is only partially successful in illustrating the girls and is at its best when they are grown-up and can be compared with other adults. Otherwise, though, the pictures are quite charming, reminiscent of Barbara Cooney's work, and suit this direct account very well. Ilene Cooper
