The little boy is fascinated by an old woman he sees every day. She looks huge. She looks like the type of woman that eats children. But when he sees her dropping her bag one day, she suddenly looks smaller. He helps her to collect her things and visits her at home. He finds out that she is actually a dear old lady, softer than little mice and sweeter than sweets.


A charming book about overcoming your prejudices and finding a new friend.
