In this illustrated rhyme, a little old lady thinks that her house is a squash and a squeeze, but with the help of a few farmyard animals and the advice of a wise old man she soon discovers that it's not as small as she thought.

What Reviewers Are Saying
You may not think you need yet another version of the tale about someone realizing that her house is actually big enough to accommodate a whole slew of animals, after crowding them in - one by one - on the advice of a wise man (he looks as much like a vicar as a rabbi here). But this variant has two things to recommend it: Donaldson's merrily lilting text ("The little old lady cried, 'Stop, I implore!/It was cramp-y for three and it's teeny for four./Even the pig in the cupboard agrees/my house is a squash and a squeeze' "); and Scheffler's vigorously limned cartoon-style illustrations, explicating and elaborating the ludicrous events line by line. Where funds permit, a worthy addition. (Kirkus Reviews)
