Review, Network Spring 2006: According to recent statistics, one in every eight babies in the developed world is born prematurely. In 2003, Nicola Maher gave birth to her daughter Imogen, who weighed only 1 lb 8 oz at birth, and who spent nearly four months in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Ms Maher transformed her own personal experiences with Imogen and has presented us with a modern day fairy tale. The Tiniest Warrior of All explores the world of a baby born too soon, who battles the obstacles she meets along the way.
