NO DINNER! The Story of the Old Woman and the Pumpkin.
by Jessica Souhami

Review by: Stephanie Rawlins

     The colors of India compliment the retelling of this traditional Southern Asian story. A frail old woman must travel "over the river and through the woods" to visit her granddaughter on the other side of the forest. Of course she must outsmart the crafty wolf, the big bear, and the ferocious tiger; all hoping to make the little old woman their dinner. Now, being a frail old woman, just skin and bones, the grandmother convinces the beasts to wait and eat her on the return trip for then she will be nice and fat from her feast. After her visit, the old woman and her granddaughter then devise a plan for the now plump and juicy grandma, to make a safe return through the forest without becoming dinner herself. The granddaughter puts the old woman in a huge red pumpkin, then gives her a huge push. As the big red pumpkin rolls through the woods the old woman must still use her wits to overcome the beasts of the forest. Large, bright illustrations, bold lettering and sound effects, make this a great storytellers book.
