There was an old woman
who didn't like children,
Who lived in a musty old,
crusty old boot,
Who had an old cat
who didn't like kittens,
Who didn't like anything
little or cute.
So when a family with FIVE boisterous children moves into the tumble-down shoe next door, the old woman will do anything to be rid of the pests. But her plan backfires, and soon she discovers a fate worse than children! NOW what will the old woman do?
Jane Manning's lively pictures combine with Linda Smith's rollicking nursery rhyme in a book that will have children laughing out loud.
