Danny Dunn and the Smalifying Machine by Jay Williams and Raymomnd Abrashkin (London: MacDonald, 1969)

Danny and his friends Joe and Irene get caught in the Professor's machine and made very small. The book stands out only because being small is so realistically depicted: almost being blown away, the surface tension of water making it hard to get a drink. Also that both Danny and his friend Irene actively want to be scientists.

On a somewhat similar theme, have you seen Gillian Cross's *The Dark Ground* (2004)? I thought it excellent. (It's also the first of a trilogy, I think, but I haven't read any of the others yet.) Can't say more, without being more spoilerish than I already have been!
