Vinney is short. He gets picked on, overlooked in the lunch line, and passed by for the good parts in the school play. He can’t reach the chapter books in the library and never gets passed the basketball! Vinney hates being short. That is, until he learns to Think Big! Vinney takes his new positive attitude to school and turns the downsides of being short upside down. It’s tough being little in a big world, but Vinney learns that it isn’t so bad after all.
