Descriere

Imagine being the tallest person in the world. As a child. You just keep growing and growing and growing...six feet...seven feet...eight feet up. The world is made in miniature and you must constantly endure. The crush of public attention is relentless. Some people are kind, some are mean. All are curious. This may sound like a tale from long ago, but this is the inspirational true life story of young Robert Wadlow. The victim of an overactive pituitary gland, Robert lived from 1918 to 1940. He stood just shy of 9 feet tall by the time of his death at age 22. Robert didn't choose his situation, but his accomplishment was in how he handled it. Children's biography, 32 pages, includes historical images.This is the updated edition released in September 2019. The original version (with a blue cover)was released in 2010.

Robert Wadlow

The Unique Life of the Boy Who

Became the World’s Tallest Man

by Jennifer Phillips

Imagine . . .

You tower over your school friends and grown-ups.

You need special clothes and shoes.

Your feet are too long for most stairs. Furniture is too small.

People stare. Sometimes, they even pinch or kick your legs to see if you are using stilts.

Meanwhile, your body keeps growing and growing with no end in sight.

Your size doesn’t come with superhuman strength or spine-tingling excitement. Just getting through your day takes a lot of energy.

How would you feel?

Robert Wadlow’s size came with hardships. He had days when he felt scared, frustrated, embarrassed or uncomfortable. Yet he was known for being patient, gentle, smart and funny.

He learned how to cope. He refused to be angry about his different life he had to lead.

Robert became the world’s tallest
