You know how your stomach growls
when you're really hungry?
That's how it started,
except the growling wasn't coming
from my stomach.
It was coming from behind my eyeballs....
"Help!" I screamed.
But my voice wasn't normal either.
It was the voice of a small person.
A very very very small person.

Meet Daniel Funk, a regular guy who's stuck living in a house full of girls. Why couldn't he have a brother instead of all those sisters? That would be so cool. When Daniel shrinks to the size of the fourth toe on his left foot, he discovers that he actually does have a brother. A little brother. A very little brother. He's Pablo Funk, Daniel's tiny twin, who is a toeful of trouble.

When Daniel and Pablo decide to have some fun at their sisters' party and let loose a giant hissing cockroach just to watch the girls scream, they find out that it's dangerous to be so small.

Lin Oliver's hilarious new series, with Stephen Gilpin's comical illustrations, reveals that sometimes big-time fun comes in very small packages.

When Daniel shrinks, he and his tiny brother engage in some potentially dangerous acts, like catapulting themselves with rubber bands -- but kids couldn't emulate any of it.
