"A delightful picture book, perfect for both independent reading pleasure and for telling aloud... The humor of the little old lady's fearless attitude and her clever solution as to what to do...will enchant young audiences. The catchy refrain never falters, and the rhythmic repeated sounds made by each of the woman's pursuers are sure to appeal to children. Lloyd's brilliantly-colored, detailed folk art-style illustrations are a perfect complement to the text." --School Library Journal
