Trouble with a Tiny t

Twelve-year-old Westin Hopper gets in trouble—a lot. At home, at school, at his grandparents’ house. . . . His ADHD always seems to mess with his brain, making him do impulsive things. So when Westin finds a magic bag that makes his thoughts come alive, he thinks it’s the ticket to fixing his life. Instead, his wandering brain strikes again, conjuring up a mini T. rex, an army of headless plastic men, and a six-inch Thor. Now they all live in his bedroom, eating lunchmeat, wreaking havoc, and growing. And Westin doesn’t know how to make them go away. He enlists his fellow social outcast, Lenora, to help him make things right. Lenora helps Westin realize that his talent for drawing could be the key to solving his problems. If Westin can focus while drawing, maybe he can learn to control the magic and get rid of the creatures in his room. But he’d better learn quickly. Tiny T is growing—and fast.

School Library Journal - Juliet Morefield, Multnomah Cty. Lib., Portland, OR

"Told from Westin’s point of view, readers are treated to his unique and often humorous perspective. The action-packed novel takes place in just a week, with the pace complementing the over-the-top absurdity of the plot. Saunders skillfully balances fantasy with real-life themes, and multiple characters develop a greater sense of self-awareness throughout the novel. Westin’s evolving understanding of his ADHD is poignant, and his emerging friendship with Leonora adds a welcome warmth. . . . Young readers will enjoy the fantastical and humorous components of the novel, but there is plenty they will also relate to, as well." - School Library Journal

Kirkus Reviews

"Saunders, a licensed family therapist, ably describes ADHD’s hyperactivity and distractibility through West’s slightly-too-observant first-person narrative. . .This title fills a need for books about learning differences. . . . Ultimately empowering." - Kirkus Reviews

"Terrific with a capital T! Readers will fall in love with Westin, a fifth grade boy struggling to control his impulses, navigate old and new friendships, and manage the very hungry Tyrannosaurus Rex that lives in his bedroom. Poignant moments, hilarious action, unpredictable magic, and snappy dialogue make Trouble With A Tiny t the perfect addition to your child's bookshelf." - Jennifer Lynn Alvarez
