Izzie wasn’t very tall for seven. Not even for six. Or five. Even if she stood on her tippy, tippy toes, her pony tail, just reached the top of Daddy’s chair.” So begins the tale of the little girl who believes that by eating lots of cupcakes, she will get tall, maybe even tall enough to be a ballerina. Too many cupcakes cause a tummy ache and the trouble starts. Living gluten-free isn’t a piece of cake until Izzie learns that being special is really what makes you tall. Lowell’s charming and emotionally honest tale, complete with resources and a real-life happy ending in the form of a gluten- and lactose-free cupcake recipe from Whole Foods Market Gluten-Free Bakehouse. Ages 4 and up.
