If I Were You by L. Ron Hubbard

Book Description:
Explore exotic new worlds. Circus midget Little Tom Little is the king of midgets, loved by crowds and carnival folk alike. Only he doesn't just want to be a bigger circus star, he wants to be just like the circus' tall and imposing leader.

Trouble begins the moment that a set of ancient books containing the secret of switching bodies finds its way into Tom Little's tiny hands. When he magically trades his small frame with that of the circus chief, he finds himself in a giant-sized heap of trouble—his craving for height has landed him smack in the center ring surrounded by forty savage cats! ALSO INCLUDES THE FANTASY STORY "THE LAST DROP" 

My Thoughts:
This one intrigued me!  Tom Little is just that, little!  He is a midget and everyone loves him and his act at the circus.  He hates being little and has always dreamed of being the ringmaster.  When he is left books and advice from a creepy man that hated him, he never suspects he is getting himself into serious trouble.  He switches bodies and gets himself in trouble bigger and bigger. I was surprised when Tom first switched bodies but I loved his voice!  Listening to the narrator, he did a wonderful job.  His girlfriends voice was original and he even made the ringmaster sound pompous and obnoxious!  Good story and wonderfully told
I rate this one a 4/5.  The stories were really good.
