The Funny Little Woman

The Funny Little Womanby: Arlene Mosel

Why I love it: A favorite as a child, my parents read this book to me frequently. We competed in who could produce the best laugh!

Listen to the first part of the story... and the woman's laugh!

What Happens:While making dumplings, one of them tumbles off the table, and down below the earth! She must retrieve her dumpling and deceive the wicked oni in order to return home.

Setting: Ancient Japan takes a trip down into the center of the earth. A Japanese folktale made fun!

The Plot Thickens:The oni asks the woman to make them food from a single grain of rice.
