Editorial Reviews

Review

"Galdone has directed his considerable talent and style to the traditional British ghost story." School Library Journal

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.

It is a folk story and one that most children enjoy if you read it well.

Format: Paperback
If you've ever been to a slumber party you've probably heard someone tell this spooky-fun tale. Illustrator Paul Galdone gives the royal treatment to this classic story of a teeny-tiny woman out on a teeny-tiny walk who finds herself a teeny-tiny bone and thinks of making a teeny-tiny pot of soup for herself. Humour and suspense in generous amounts follow the events that spiral out from her one simple act of bringing the bone home. The silly surprise ending is classic slumber-party fare...eek! This is a good story for around Halloween time due to its bedtime suspense and ghostly plot. Be sure to share this one with a new generation of kids. It's sure to be loved.

My son absolutely loves this story. He enjoys the fact that he can follow the words with the audio narrator and at the same time get spooky feelings about the Teeny-Tiny Woman! I am so glad we found this book - it is very unique and keeps his attention - no matter how many times he reads it. Definetly a keeper for our library!

My grandma had this story when I was growing up and we LOVED it, but I didn't remember it as being a ghost story. Her version had different illustrations that I liked quite a bit more. This wasn't what I had hoped for.

I have read this book during story time for YEARS. There are other versions of the Teeny Tiny Woman out there, but Galdone's has, to me, the best pacing and rhythm. Like so many of his versions of basic fairy tales, he gets the job done simply and well. I often read this book early in October as an introduction to the "scary stories" that will follow later in month. When I read this book aloud I use the "voices" as the kids say, with a teeny tiny squeaky voice for the woman and a moaning spooky voice for the ghost, so that by the time the last page comes the students are enthralled. Then, at the end,when the teeny tiny woman says in her biggest teeny tiny voice--scream the words "TAKE IT!!!! They'll jump out of their seats. And then they will laugh and laugh. This book is always a hit.

If you want the one from the 70's, you need to find the one by Margot Zemach.

This book by Paul Galdone is mostly the same story, with the same punchline, but it's not quite the same as the one we had when I was a teeny-tiny girl.

When I was in first grade, I read this book in front of my classmates as an assignment. I LOVED this book! I was so excited to get it for my six-year-old son, but when I read it to him, it creeped him out and now he doesn't want anything to do with it. If your son or daughter is more sensitive to spooky or scary stories or images, I wouldn't get this book for them. I hadn't thought my son would be so sensitive to it, but as it turns out, he is. Oh well. I still truly enjoy this story and I think many other children still do and will. The illustrations are great and the story leaves off so that the children can contemplate what happens afterward. It inspires imagination and creativity while being educational and reader friendly.
