I suppose I can say that the initial premise is of a little old lady going out to pick vegetables and stumbling across a big hairy orange toe. That night really fearful, dreadful things happen, she hears to a strange voice crying, 'Where is my hairy toe? ever since ive been little ive loved this book so many childrens books are about the prince and the princess living happily ever after which is pretty cool but this book is original and funny and random i love it! This story will be a perfect book if one looks to introduce horror or scary story to reception or year one children. I think that it can be a scary book -if read in the right way -which is rare for a picture book so they love the feeling of being scared (but knowing they are safe at the same time -if that makes sense!

I have read this to the Infant school children I teach for years and years- it is always a favourite with them! Humorously illustrated by Daniel Postgate this spine-tickling traditional tale is perfect for halloween and shouts to be read out loud! She then decides to take it home with her (what possesses her to do this I do not know), and then night falls. A vulnerable old lady is engaged in an uncertain defensive action on a flimsy premise with no discernible ending. Sixteen top-quality books with notes for extending reading fun inspire the confidence parents and children need to experience the joys of reading .I don't know why but there's something about this story that's just wonderfully creepy and beautiful. We snuggle into bed together and skooch under the covers as the creature gets closer and closer to identifying itself. Also love a classic picture book and folktale with an old woman protagonist (despite her meeting an implied gruesome end).

I stopped reading after the middle of the story and allowed the children to think what might happen next and I did a shared WB writing assuming if they were the author how they would end that story?

It is a good book for involving children to use different voices, and exaggerate certain words or phrases. It's "A Traditional American Tale", boasts the flyleaf, as if that excuses the poverty of the plot, and it's not even set in Afghanistan. plus, I let her imagination run wild as we try to figure out how the creature lost it's Hairy Toe in the first place!
