Leggy supermodels and pro basketball players be warned: being tall doesnand#8217;t mean youand#8217;re always a step up in life

and#160;

Graphic designer Becky Murphy is five-foot-nothing and proud to be petite. Sure, sometimes being diminutive gets you the short end of the stick, but there are also plenty of unique advantages to being under 5and#8217;4and#8221;and#151;and Murphy has compiled the 100 best reasons in the delightfully whimsical Iand#8217;d Rather Be Short. Illustrated in a charming, quirky style, Iand#8217;d Rather Be Short highlights the benefits of being petite, from the sensible to the absurd, including:

and#160;

and#183;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; You get the best of both worlds: kidsand#8217; meals and cocktail parties

and#183;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; Youand#8217;re never expected to help your friends move

and#160;

Witty and heartwarming, Iand#8217;d Rather Be Short is a celebration of self-acceptanceand#151;and an instant ego boost to pint-sized ladies everywhere.

Synopsis:

You and Me is a loving tribute to how fate brought two best friends together. An adorable cat muses about the what-ifs in life: What if he had slept late that one special morning? What if heandrsquo;d missed his train on that fateful day? Then he might never have met his favorite person in the world, and his entire life would be different!

Two friends delight in the incredible power of serendipity in this charming tale. Illustrated by the bestselling Peter H. Reynolds, You and Me is the ultimate gift for the closest of friends on Valentineandrsquo;s Day or any day of the year.

Synopsis:

Together they stand on the hill, telling each other stories and feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs. And that, my friends, is how it is with love." --Edward Monkton

Mr. Darcy and Miss Bennett. Ozzie and Harriet. Jay-Z and Beyonce. Great couples often find togetherness by embracing their individual differences. In this modern-day fable, Edward Monkton pens an irresistible love story about a fiercely funny but distant Dinosaur who falls in love with a forgetful but free-spirited (and shopping-savvy) Lovely Other Dinosaur.

* Monkton, perhaps better known as the U.K.'s top-selling living poet Giles Andreae

* This ode to love pairs Monkton's signature illustrations with simple yet profound prose.
