“A splendiferous Halloween story.” — The Horn Book

“A great purchase for Halloween or any time of year.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

Once upon a time, there was a little old lady who was not afraid of anything! But one autumn night, while walking in the woods, the little old lady heard...clomp, clomp, shake, shake, clap, clap.

And the little old lady who was not afraid of anything had the scare of her life! With bouncy refrains and classic art, this timeless Halloween story is perfect for reading aloud.

The horse is in the pigpen ... the pigs are in the chicken coop ... and you'll never guess where the chickens are!Heeey, Ma!Something very strange is happening on this little farm. None of the animals are where they belong! The only person who can sort it all out is Ma -- but Ma is terribly busy. What will the animals and one puzzled little girl do if Ma never has time to get everything back the way it's supposed to be?

The author-illustrator team who created The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything will charm readers with a playful text that begs to be read aloud and delightfully slapstick illustrations of one discombobulated farmyard.
