About the author:
Chris Karim began writing for children in 2003 after earning a Master's Degree in Education from Syracuse University. His strong respect for children can be seen in his popular website,, which encourages kids to create stories, offer solutions to sticky situations, play fun and challenging games, provide feedback, and more. In Chris's words, "I wanted to build a website that gave kids a voice." He penned Be Little long before bullying had a place in the national spotlight. He saw a need for a realistic story that showed middle-grade readers how bullying issues may be resolved in the real world, not by the wave of a magic wand but through persistence and the willingness of students to speak up and take a stand. His goal was to create a book that would entertain, challenge, and inspire readers.
