Welcome to the online book club for The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb by Melanie Benjamin.
I thought I was reading a fiction book until I got to the end of the book and read about how the author discovered writings about a Mrs. Tom Thumb performing for P.T. Barnum. I thought it was a very interesting book before that and now I think it’s even better that there really was such a person. I think the author really tried to see the world from the view of a 2-foot-tall woman trying to be as independent as she could be and see the world. I hope you enjoyed reading it – come discuss it with me!
