What happens when... Old Doctor Wango Tango, along with his rosy, blowsy, noisy nose and crew of lightweight pets, travels to the tip of a "very" windy hill? Two dancing legs; two waving, whirling arms; and one "big" head piece themselves together? A little old lady buries the prickly, tickly, scary, hairy toe that she's found, only to be chased by the "something" that wants it back? Children will tingle with terror and shriek with glee over Nancy Van Laan and Victoria Chess's hilariously spooky -- but not "too" spooky -- read-aloud tales.

And the final installment in this trilogy of horror is an old favorite of the up-past-midnight sleepover set: An old woman is picking peas (the bright green pea pods are as long as her arm) and finds a detached hairy toe on the ground.
