"I'm bored," thought Aaron Tiny as he sat behind a wall. He was staring through a tiny nail hole in the wall watching Peter Martin, the big boy in the next room playing video games. "I could do better than he's doing," Aaron sighed. At that moment, Aaron heard the boy's mother calling him. "Peter, are you ready to go to Aunt Martha's with me?" "Ready, or willing?" muttered Peter under his breath. When his mother appeared in the doorway, Peter finally turned off the video game and headed out. A moment later Aaron heard the front door close behind them. He waited several minutes, just to be sure they weren't coming back for something they had forgotten, then he quickly hurried down the hallway that had been built into the walls of the big people’s house. Now was his chance. Aaron had discovered a mouse hole that led into Peter’s bedroom only the week before. It had taken a little exploring, but finally he figured out a way to get down to the mouse hole and back up. He had needed a rope to climb on, but just that week the big family had thrown away an old lamp, and the cord was perfect for the task. Find out what happens when Aaron sneaks into Peter’s room to play a video game and finds himself in the middle of an earthquake! The Tinys are a family of very small people that live inside the walls of a big person’s apartment. In many ways Tinys are like littles, but they don’t have tails like littles do. There are four children in the Tiny family. Gabrielle (or Brie as she is better known) is the oldest. Then comes Aaron, the only boy. After Aaron are the twins, Danielle and Rachelle. They all live with their mother and father. Living nearby are their grandmother and their Aunti Karen, who they spend a lot of time with. The Tinys all live in the walls of an apartment that belongs to the Martin family. In the Martin Family there are the parents, June and Jerry, and their only child, Peter. They also have three cats! As you may know, cats love to chase things that are smaller than they are, and tinys are just the right size for a cat to chase. The cats will pounce on the tinys and bat them around. They may not mean to hurt the tinys, but they do. That’s why tinys don’t like cats. The Tinys work hard at making things work. They like to recycle things that the big people throw away. They also like parties, and good times, and spending time together. In many ways, Tinys are just like you and me, only smaller. Read about the adventures of the Tinies in this series. Ages 7 to 12.

It was a wonderful day. Little three-year-old Rachelle Tiny was in a good mood. She was pushing her brand new baby in its brand new stroller, up and down the passageways inside the walls of the big people's house. And all the while she was singing a happy song. Papa Tiny had made the stroller out of a half a walnut shell, with wheels made of four matching buttons. The teeny Tiny baby doll that fit in it was no more than half an inch tall from the top of its curly yarn head to the bottom of its teeny Tiny feet. Mama Tiny had made the doll for her from a few scraps of leftover material and a piece of yarn. Rachelle thought the whole thing was magnificent! And to make the whole effect even better, Rachelle was also wearing her dress up things. She had on a necklace made of tiny beads. They came down to a point on which was hung a gold foil star from a discarded Christmas decoration. In the very center was a piece of silver glitter that sparkled and shone like a diamond. The glitter necklace, as she called it, matched the other tiny pieces of gold foil with glitter that sparkled on her ears. All in all, Rachelle thought the effect was stunning. In fact, Rachelle was thinking so much about how pretty she looked that she wasn't paying attention to where she was going. The next thing you know, Rachelle looked around her and realized that she was lost! Read about Rachelle’s adventure, and what happens when she meets up with one of the big people’s cats.

It was 1803 and Stephen Decatur was in the Navy. He was on a ship that was in Europe. Stephen was the commander of a small ship. It was named the Enterprise. One day the head of the Navy called Stephen and some other men together. "Men, I have some bad news," he said. "We have lost the Philadelphia." The men groaned. Stephen knew that the Philadelphia was a big ship. She had 44 huge cannons on her. "She was chasing an enemy ship when she ran into a sand bar. The enemy captured her, along with all her men and her guns. "They have gotten her off the sand bar and taken her into a bay for repairs. When she is fixed, she will be part of the enemy fleet. She will be one of the biggest and fastest ships they have. It would be better if she had sunk rather than be used against us." The meeting ended. Stephen kept thinking about the ship. Finally he went to the commander. "What if we stole the Philadelphia?" he asked. "We could get her back. If we cannot steal her, we could burn her. Then she could not be used against us."
