It is a fun book to read and has a nice flowing rhythm.

The wee washy woman packs up her pots and her pans, and her glue, and walks on - and you wouldn't want to eat any of her stew would you!!!!!!
A. Woodley
And each time you get to that part on each page, you say "Nicketty!"

This story is about an ogre who tries to force a "wee wishy woman" into living in his home and cooking for him and how she stays cool and calm, outsmarts him, and then escapes. The story is written in verse--about one four-line verse per page. My two year old loves this book, but I think an older child (four to eight years old) would enjoy it even more.

This is a wonderful story which twists in just the right way to allow children to really enjoy it. The illustrations are perfect. Gorgeously done, lovely colours. It is about an Ogre called 'gobbler magoo' who lives in a swamp where the wild weeds grew.

He captures a 'wee-washy woman' and takes her home to make him a good tasty stew.

She chops and she cuts and she throws it all in, all the time looking sweetly benign. The Ogre eats it up, quickly then more slowly, And then realises that the stew has been made with glue!

The wee washy woman packs up her pots and her pans, and her glue, and walks on - and you wouldn't want to eat any of her stew would you!!!!!!

At the end of every verse is the very irish refrain 'nickety nackety noo noo noo" which the chlidren love chanting.

It is wonderful book which can be frequently re-read. Immensely good fun and good humoured - Highly recommended!!!!

We bought Nicketty Nacketty Noo-Noo-Noo when our daughter was four and it is one of her favorites. It is a fun book to read and has a nice flowing rhythm. She took it to her pre-k class this past year when they were working on the "oo" sound and it was perfect. Our two year old likes the book too. She enjoys the rhythmical nonsense of the words, as well as shouting the recurrent "Nicketty-Nacketty Noo-Noo-Noo" phrase that is on every page.

I love this book. I was first introduced to Joy Cowley by her book "The Fierce Little Woman and the Wicked Pirate" which I still think is the best of her work that I've read yet, but this is a fantastic book for kids. First of all, the "Ogre" is not frightening at all, he looks like a big normal person. Also, he's not interested in eating people (the subject is never brought up) he's just looking for a good cook to make him vegetable stew. Second, the woman here is smart and clever, and outwits the Ogre by making a stew out of glue, and when he's stuck to the table she makes her escape. But the thing that's best about Joy Cowley is she understands that there are things in books that make them interactive to kids. So in the Fierce Little Woman and the Wicked Pirate, the kids love to "tap-tap-tap" and "Knock-knock-knock" and "scratch-scratch-scratch" at the windows/doors as the pirate is trying to get in. In this book, there's the constant refrain "Nickety, Nacketty Noo-noo-noo!" And each time you get to that part on each page, you say "Nicketty!" And the kids jump in with the rest. So overall, a really well paced, simple, fun, fantastical book that kids just love.

A humorous and light hearted story about a gruff ogre who insists a travelling woman be the maker of his stew. She cleverly pays him back for his rudeness by making his stew with glue then leaves him in a glued up mess as she walks away free to continue her journey.
