Jessica Souhami's crisp retelling and vibrant illustrations bring to life a traditional story told throughout southern Asia. Many dangers lie waiting in the woods for a frail, old woman. Fierce, hungry animals in search of their next meal; wolves, bears, and tigers ready to pounce. But, as this outlandish tale proves, if the woman is resourceful and brave and happens to have an equally clever granddaughter, no wolf, bear, or tiger stands a chance against her! Between the crisp text that begs to be read out loud and quirky drawings done in the brilliant colors of India, young readers will cheer as one old lady outwits her beastly adversaries!
