Inspired by a true story this novel spans two decades that changed England for ever. Nat Davey is the fictional small man of the novel and in history he was Jeffery Hudson, the French Queen Henrietta Maria’s dwarf. The year is 1625 and Nat has been sold by his father for a few shillings to be hidden in a pie and presented to the Queen as a present.
The Smallest Man is a heartwarming tale about being different, but not letting it hold you back. About being brave enough to take a chance, and about how, when everything is falling apart, true friendship holds people together.
