“5’1 is the new 6’2, and Becky’s book proves it.”-Kristen Bell
Leggy supermodels and pro basketball players be warned: being tall doesn’t mean you’re always a step up in life.
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 5’4”-and Murphy has compiled the 100 best reasons in the delightfully whimsical I’d Rather Be Short. Illustrated in a charming, quirky style, I’d Rather Be Short highlights the benefits of being petite, from the sensible to the absurd, including:
· You get the best of both worlds: kids’ meals and cocktail parties
· You’re never expected to help your friends move
· Concertgoers usually won’t hassle you when you shimmy up to the front
· You’re less likely to get struck by lightning
· Skirts can be dresses; dresses can be skirts
· You’re just the way you should be
Witty and heartwarming, I’d Rather Be Short is a celebration of self-acceptance-and an instant ego boost to pint-sized ladies everywhere.
