A teeny tiny woman finds a teeny tiny bone in a churchyard and puts it away in her cupboard before she goes to sleep, only to be awakened by a teeny tiny voice demanding the return of the bone.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3-In this comical rendition of the traditional tale, the teeny tiny woman has a huge yellow and red polka-dot bag and matching umbrella, an oversized hat with a feather, and large black-and-white shoes. During her walk, she finds a teeny tiny bone on a teeny tiny grave and takes it home to make soup. As she rests in her teeny tiny bed, she hears a voice calling for the bone. Three sinister green fingers grip the door and two eyes peer out from the darkness. As the volume of the voice increases, more of the monster emerges. At the punch line, when the woman screams, "Take it," her wide-open mouth fills one side of the double-page spread, and a small green monster, complete with red and yellow polka-dot patches on his pants, flees across the other. The pen-and-watercolor cartoons underscore the broad humor of the tale with their slapstick style. Set against violet and gray backgrounds, the woman's colorful attire and snappy smile send a visual message of fun. Even in the indoor scenes, a circle of yellow spotlights her as if she were on stage. Even if you already have Paul Galdone's The Teeny-Tiny Woman (Clarion, 1984) or Barbara Seuling's retelling (Viking, 1976), this fresh new version is still worth adding to your collection.
