Little, by Edward Carey
Reviewed by Lilia, Berkelouw Paddington
I turned the final page of this novel and immediately wanted to begin it again. Carey immerses readers in 18th Century France with clarity and detail. With its obscure characters, organic illustrations and historical significance, Carey has created a novel that does justice to the life and story of the eccentric wax sculptors apprentice 'Little' who went on to be the creator of the global attraction, Madame Tussauds.
