The story follows a widow who travels to her grand-
daughter's house. Along the way she meets some hungry animals. The old woman will have to use all her cleverness to arrive safely at her family's house and return home again unharmed.
I didn't discover this charming book until I had a family of my own, but it reminds me of The Lambikin by Helen S. Hansen, illustrated by Jack and Louise Meyers for Whitman in 1962. I used to ask my mother to read The Lambikin over and over. The Lambikin was originally taken from Tales of the Punjab, so the comparison makes perfect sense.
