A NEW FAVORITE!!! 22 Mar. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is hysterical!
It's begins as a play on the old "There was an old woman who lived in a shoe" rhyme, but that is the only similarity.
This old lady doesn't like kids, so when the neighbor rolls in with a whole pack of 'em, she and her cat pay a visit to the local witch to get some potion. Kiddie-Be-Gone seems to do the trick, but the little old lady's troubles are just beginning.
I laughed so hard when I read this aloud, I could barely breath.
My class asks for it over an dover again!

New Twist on an old Favorite 19 Oct. 2004
By A. Frederick - Published on
Format: Library Binding
Everyone has heard the story of the little old woman who lived in a shoe, but do they know about her neighbor, the little old woman who lived in a boot? This old woman does not like children and her cat does not care for kittens, so they are none-too-pleased when five happy, giggly, rambunctious children move into the shoe next door. Using the old nursery rhyme as a basis for the story, Linda Smith has created an interesting follow-up that children are sure to enjoy. It is told in a fun bouncy rhyme that pulls the reader through the story. The illustrations are smart and detailed enough to attract young children. No nursery rhyme would be complete without a lesson or two, and there are several in this tale that children can discuss with parents or teachers. A fine addition to any library or classroom.
LOVE this book! 4 Mar. 2013

My 3.5-year old daughter loves this, and so do I! It's a really fun book to read, and just the right length/pace for a bedtime story. The internal rhyming is really catchy. We happened to find this book at the library, but I'm going to look for more by this author. SO CUTE!
Damaged 2 Sept. 2013

I thought I ordered a book that was "like new." It had a page torn out of it. I contacted the seller twice trying to replace it and never received a response so I was stuck with a book I couldn't give to my great niece.
