Overview

"Izzie wasn't very tall for seven. Not even for six. Or five. Even if she stood on her tippy, tippy toes, her pony tail, just reached the top of Daddy's chair..."

So begins the tale of the little girl who believes that by eating lots of cupcakes, she will get tall, maybe even tall enough to be a ballerina. Too many cupcakes cause a tummy ache and the trouble starts. Living gluten-free isn't a piece of cake until Izzie learns that being special is really what makes you tall. Beautifully illustrated and with a foreword by Alessio Fasano, M.D., Director of the Center for Celiac Research, Lowell's charming and emotionally honest tale, complete with resources and a real-life happy ending in the form of a gluten- and lactose-free cupcake recipe from Whole Foods Market Gluten-Free Bakehouse chef Lee Tobin, will live in the hearts of parents and children for generations to come.

"Enchanting. Beautifully written. A tale to delight every child on a special diet."

-- Peggy Wagener, Living Without Magazine

"If only I had known Izzie when I was a sick little banana baby."

-- Elaine Monarch, Exec. Dir., Celiac Disease Foundation

"Written with sensitivity and charm, this wonderful tale is just what the doctor ordered."

-- Alessio Fasano, M.D.

"Jax has done it again! Isabel O'Brien is the soul of every celiac child who wants to belong."

-- Diane Eve Paley, President, CSA

"Aren't we lucky this talented writer is one of us."

-- Alice Bast, National Foundation for Celiac Awareness

"Brilliant! Feisty little Izzie is the Eloise of the gluten-free set."

-- Jack Cassidy, RJH, London
