Donít be fooled by the pillbox hats, pearl necklaces, or support hose. Ignore the walkers, hearing aids, and false teeth. Little old ladies are people to be reckoned with and lead far more exciting lives than we could ever imagine. To benefit from these wonderful women, all you have to do is listen.
In this quirky, uproarious picture book, Franziska Kalch uncovers the secrets of this often misunderstood population. You wonít find these old ladies feeding the ducks at the pond or walking at the local mall. Instead, look for them at the trendiest dance clubs or basking by the pool. They have so many experiences and ideas to share. We just have to ask.

Franziska Kalch lives in Germany.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2—This love letter on the lives and antics of little old ladies is a sweet but ultimately incomplete portrait of women in their prime. It starts with, "If you think little old ladies just sit around all day feeding the ducks in the park, you are quite mistaken," and finishes with, "Little old ladies can tell us so much. We only need to listen." But listen to what? While the book shows the women having fun, readers never get to share in the wonderful tales waiting for their attention. The end result is a random assortment of unconnected comments. This is a shame, because the colored-pencil illustrations are delightful, showing a group of little old ladies relishing all the good things in life, like secret admirers, a fine wine by the side of the pool, and each other. Hopefully, some readers will be inspired to find their own little old ladies and ask for a tale or two.—Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA
