Kid’s Review: A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

Order a copy!

A little old lady lived all by herself with a table and chairs and a jug on the shelf.

Summary: With the help of an old man and all of her animals, an old lady realizes that her house is not as small as she thought it was.

Why I like this book: This rollicking rhyme spins an old Jewish folk tale said to be from Poland, is always fun, but made so much sweeter by the master of rhyme herself, Julia Donaldson. Scheffler is able to add so much emotion to the cozy illustrations (the goat’s face while pig raids the cupboard is priceless!), that you might want to move in with all the characters too!
