THE TEENY-TINY WOMAN by Paul Galdone.  New York:  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1984.  32p.  ISBN 978-1544-641051 hc. $8.99   PreS-Gr.2   E PIC

Readers are in for a treat because Paul Galdone's Folk Tale Classics have been reprinted with hard covers at a paperback price.  This is the eleventh so far, joining titles such as THE THREE BEARS, HENNY PENNY, RUMPELSTILTSKIN, and THE LITTLE RED HEN - all childhood favorites.  My favorite, THE TEENY-TINY WOMAN is fun to read aloud to children in a group or individually, and can be used as a very gentle ghost story in your repertoire of Halloween tales.  The repetition of "teeny-tiny" can be used as a choral response from a group of listeners or as a visual cue when learning to read print.  The large text and abundance of illustrations make this cute, but suspenseful, story a quick read for all ages.
