The little old lady's house is far too small. So the wise old man tells her to squeeze in a crowd of farm animals. She'll be amazed how big her house feels when she pushes them out again!
"This is a great series which, by using well-loved stories, will encourage young children to become enthusiastic, independent readers." - Dr Fiona Maine, Lecturer in Literacy Education, University of Cambridge
