Sam Gayton lives in South London.
In 2009 he completed the Writing for Young People MA at Bath Spa University. His first book is The Snow Merchant. He loves American novels, Italian food and the English countryside. When he's not writing, he likes playing old board games, strumming his guitar and joining as many rock bands as possible (currently at seven).
Spirited and clever tribute to the original
Unlimited storytelling inventiveness . . . Swift himself would have approved.
Sam Gayton brings a lively cast — including a boy rescuer, a chatty parrot and a kind chocolate-shop owner — to the appealing scenario of a tiny person in a giant world.
Lovely old-fashioned storytelling… this beautifully illustrated book will appeal widely
Exuberant and imaginative use of language, page-turningly exciting… A very covetable book.
Don’t miss this book. It really is something rather special.
This magical novel with its indomitable heroine offers 8+ readers an enthralling experience . . . An excellent addition to this genre
