Exaggerated features and expressive gestures illustrate this delightful folk story about a greedy old woman who gets her comeuppance. Based on an old Shantung folk song, it’s part prose and part rhyme and proceeds busily with agreeable speed as the old woman goes from one awkward transformation to another. Unlike many stories about magical transformation, this one agreeably surprises as the old woman manages to wrestle herself out of her dilemma. The watercolor pictures are filled with bold and unusual color juxtapositions, such as fuchsia, lavender and pink with orange, blue and peach. They make this a superb picture book as well as a winning story.
