In this highly imaginative, delightful tale, the great composer Maurice Ravel gets lost and waylaid on a journey to Spain, which he has never before seen. Unfortunately, he is tiny, the size of a mere doll, which gets him into misadventures and troubles galore. The author displays genuine affection for the historical character of Ravel, but immerses him in a humorous fictional environment akin to that of Todd Michael Cox's Dizzlemuck, E. B. White's Stuart Little, Mary Norton's The Borrowers, and Walter de la Mare's Memoirs of a Midget.
