Blog Tour: The Smallest Man by Frances Quinn

I am supposed to be posting a review of The Smallest Man by Frances Quinn. Unfortunately I haven't been able to read it as work has really been getting in the way of reading and blogging at the moment. I am totally exhausted at the end of each day so until a couple of days ago. Now I am less than exhausted but a long way from 

My apologies to Anne from Random Things Tours. I will read the book as soon as I can, and review it!

The smallest man. The biggest heart. The mightiest story. A compelling story, perfect for fans of The Doll  Factory and The Familiars.

Nat Davy longs to grow tall and strong and be like other boys, but at the age of ten, he’s confronted with the truth; he’s different, and the day when the stares and whispers stop is never going to come.

Narrowly escaping life in a freak show, he’s plucked from his family and presented as a gift to the new young queen of England – a human pet to add to her menagerie of dogs and monkeys. But when Nat realises she’s as lost and lonely as he is, the two misfits begin an unlikely friendship – one that takes him on an unforgettable journey, as England slides into the civil war that will tear it apart and ultimately lead the people to kill their king.

Inspired by a true story, and spanning two decades that changed England for ever, The Smallest Man is narrated by an irrepressible hero with his own unique perspective on life. His story is about being different, but not letting it hold you back. About being brave enough to take a chance, even if the odds aren’t good. And about how, when everything else is falling apart, true friendship holds people together.


Frances Quinn read English at King’s College, Cambridge, and is a journalist and copywriter. She has written for magazines including Prima, Good Housekeeping, She, Woman’s Weekly and Ideal Home. She lives in Brighton with her husband and who Tonkinese cats. The Smallest Man is her first novel.
