Imagine being the tallest person in the world. As a child. You just keep growing and growing and growing...six feet...seven feet...eight feet up. The world is made in miniature and you must constantly endure. The crush of public attention is relentless. Some people are kind, some are mean. All are curious. This may sound like a tale from long ago, but this is the inspirational true life story of young Robert Wadlow. The victim of an overactive pituitary gland, Robert lived from 1918 to 1940. He stood just shy of 9 feet tall by the time of his death at age 22. Robert didn't choose his situation, but his accomplishment was in how he handled it. Biography includes historical images.

About the Author:

Jennifer Phillips is a former newspaper reporter and corporate writer who grew up in the Illinois town where Robert Wadlow lived. She doesn't remember a time when she didn't know Robert's story. There were school field trips to the Wadlow Room at the Franklin Masonic Lodge and visits to the Alton museum. Even as a grown-up, she always visits Robert's statue when going home. Now a resident of Shoreline, Washington, she likes researching and writing both children's fiction and non-fiction, although she definitely has more ideas than time. You can see more of her work at www.noseinabookpublishing.com.
