From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-In this comical rendition of the traditional tale, the teeny tiny woman has a huge yellow and red polka-dot bag and matching umbrella, an oversized hat with a feather, and large black-and-white shoes. During her walk, she finds a teeny tiny bone on a teeny tiny grave and takes it home to make soup. As she rests in her teeny tiny bed, she hears a voice calling for the bone. Three sinister green fingers grip the door and two eyes peer out from the darkness. As the volume of the voice increases, more of the monster emerges. At the punch line, when the woman screams, "Take it," her wide-open mouth fills one side of the double-page spread, and a small green monster, complete with red and yellow polka-dot patches on his pants, flees across the other. The pen-and-watercolor cartoons underscore the broad humor of the tale with their slapstick style. Set against violet and gray backgrounds, the woman's colorful attire and snappy smile send a visual message of fun. Even in the indoor scenes, a circle of yellow spotlights her as if she were on stage. Even if you already have Paul Galdone's The Teeny-Tiny Woman (Clarion, 1984) or Barbara Seuling's retelling (Viking, 1976), this fresh new version is still worth adding to your collection.

From Publishers Weekly:

Everything is "teeny tiny" in this traditional tale, in which the owner of a teeny tiny bone comes to reclaim it from the woman who has picked it up in the graveyard for her soup. Robins's (illus. of What Use Is a Moose?) retelling inches from one teeny tiny detail to another?"After a teeny tiny while/ the teeny tiny woman/ was woken by a teeny tiny voice"?until her not so teeny "TAKE IT!" sends the bone's owner, a fuzzy green fellow, scampering. The cheerful cartoon illustrations, which combine wavery lines with purple watercolor washes, ensure that this story, like The Teeny Tiny Teacher (reviewed below), is more humorous than scary. Touches like the woman's eccentric red hat and polka-dotted outfit, and the smiling cat and duck portraits over her bed, add good-natured humor to a teeny tiny one-joke story. Ages 3-6.
