From Publishers Weekly
In this knock-off of the classic folktale, a diminutive teacher and her even smaller students find a bone and are subsequently haunted by a mysterious voice. "The real triumph is Roche's rendering of the teeny tiny world inside and outside of the classroom," wrote PW. Ages 4-7. (Sept.)

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-While taking a walk in the woods with her students, a teacher finds a bone and sticks it in her coat pocket before returning to her classroom. Like its precursor, "The Teeny Tiny Woman," the story will capture the attention of children who will be wondering just who is demanding "Give me back my bone," in ever-increasing volume. As the teacher brushes off the requests, her retorts to her students, whom she assumes are making the pleas, are hilarious-exactly the type of statements made by a teacher to a class that is just a little too disruptive. Alternately she scolds, "Someone is being a teeny tiny bit silly," and "Teeny tiny students who have something to say must raise their teeny tiny hands." Up until the very end, when the closet's occupant and its motive are revealed, readers are onlookers into a classroom that has, at first glance, gotten out of hand. The full-color illustrations are bold, bright, and primitive. A fine example of what an imaginative author and illustrator can bring to an old favorite.
