Could anything be more humiliating for a man than being transformed into a little girl? To lose everything he's worked for, his power, his prestige, his very manhood, and to be forced to start his whole life over as a tiny, helpless girl young enough to be his own daughter?
Changed into a Little Girl collects two of Mindi Flyth's stories about grown men who suffer this strange fate. In "Big Words" we meet Ethan, who was changed into a six-year-old blonde by a lab accident and now struggles to cope with his new body, his changing role in his family and his own increasingly childish behavior. "Sugarplum" introduces us to Vern, an arrogant man who learns that if you cheat on your witch of a wife, she may do something far worse than divorce you. She may just wave her wand and transform you into the daughter she's always wanted.
These dark fantasy tales take us inside the minds of two men who refuse to accept the cute little girl they see in the mirror. We know their frustration as the world around them refuses to treat them like the adult men they feel like inside. And we know their desperation, as the truth begins to sink in that they may never be men again.
