Cute children's story - safely scary. The little old lady finds clothes from shoes on up in her path, clomp clomp wiggle wiggle shake shake...and then a pumpkin head, and at that point she runs! Not scared, just smart. And then a cheerful ending. I read it at a bookstore to check it out because of a suggestion in Name That Book.

Great interactive story with lots of noises. She isn't scared of anything but a pumpkin head.

A cute little book about a lady who is supposedly fearless... Great one to read to kids for Halloween.

This book would be fun to read around Halloween. It is a fun story line and the children would enjoy all of the sounds.

Is this little old lady really not afraid of anything? Her braveness is tested late one night while she was walking home. She meets some really noisy pieces of clothing and a scary pumpkin head on her walk home. This book is a great read aloud, especially around Halloween. You can use the noises to get children involved in the story telling. This is a level 3 book.

I love this book! I bought it at my daughters school book fair and after reading it through the years to all 3 of my daughters, it is definately my favorite. I have even read it a few times to classes during Dr. Seuss Reading week at schools. The children are able to interact with this book....getting involved helps keep their attention especially the younger they are. When reading this book everyone can participate in the noisy actions.

My two year old grandson first heard this book when he was about 18 months old. He loved it. Not long afterwards, he could help "read it". He loves doing the sounds. I would recommend this book highly for parents and grandparents to read to their children.

I like to read seasonal books for the grandkids to get them into the spirit of the holiday. This book was great.

This book is the favorite of both my Pre-kindergarten class and my own two children when they were little. It is fun to act out the parts of the scarecrow parts as well as the little old lady. My class is still asking to read this awesome Halloween story and we are now in January!

This is an exciting book. It was fun to read. I think other children will like it too.

My 4 year old granddaughter was afraid of scarecrows this year. I found this book and it is terrific. It talks about being scared and has repeating phrases that children can pick up and say right along with you. My grandchildren loved it and we read it over and over again and laughed more each time. The pictures are lovely and the story and the ending perfect.

This is a light hearted story for the fall season. The lesson learned is that you can turn an uneasy situation into a productive one. My daughter really enjoyed the story and by the end of the first read was able to assist in telling the story the next time.

Cute story with repetition suitable for young reader/listeners. Quality graphics; short and sweet! As a grandmother (little old lady) I identified with this story -- read to my 5 year-old grand-daughter, who learned not to be afraid.
