We snuggle into bed together and skooch under the covers as the creature gets closer and closer to identifying itself. I think that it can be a scary book -if read in the right way -which is rare for a picture book so they love the feeling of being scared (but knowing they are safe at the same time -if that makes sense!

I suppose I can say that the initial premise is of a little old lady going out to pick vegetables and stumbling across a big hairy orange toe. I don't know why but there's something about this story that's just wonderfully creepy and beautiful.She then decides to take it home with her (what possesses her to do this I do not know), and then night falls. A vulnerable old lady is engaged in an uncertain defensive action on a flimsy premise with no discernible ending. I've even taken it in to my son's class and read it to them - joyously received with squeals of delight and shock at the end - I do get a bit carried away on the last page.

plus, I let her imagination run wild as we try to figure out how the creature lost it's Hairy Toe in the first place!I used the book for my reception lesson and found the children literally bound to the story and were engaged as a part of that story.

I have read this to the Infant school children I teach for years and years- it is always a favourite with them!It's "A Traditional American Tale", boasts the flyleaf, as if that excuses the poverty of the plot, and it's not even set in Afghanistan. Humorously illustrated by Daniel Postgate this spine-tickling traditional tale is perfect for halloween and shouts to be read out loud! Rereading this little gem again today and I can still say that this is a scary book for younger readers. The first time I read it to a class they sit in silence, hanging onto every word with such suspense.
