Did you know that Charlotte Brontë wrote her first stories in tiny books?


As a child, Charlotte Brontë, (best known for her novel Jane Eyre,) and her sisters and brother played with twelve wooden soldiers they called the “Young Men.” To record the adventures of these toy men, the children sewed scraps of paper into miniature books, some as small as two by one and a half inches — no bigger than an iPhone screen. Charlotte filled one tiny book with an adventure 3000 words long. Her minuscule handwriting was almost too small for a grown-up to read!
