: DON'T let size or age fool you. When it comes to Lil' Bow Wow, good things come in small packages. (What does this sentence mean?)

: The American boy is only 16. But his CDs have sold more than a million copies, with his third record, "Unleashed", released in late August.

: The cool thing about Bow Wow is that he is one of the few rappers who don't sing songs that are filled with dirty words. He's got a serious attitude, towards education as well as to rapping.

"Good things come in small packages" is a traditional saying that's used to praise a physically small person. The performer being described is young and (probably) below average height.
