** spoiler alert ** (Picture Book) I had heard the basic of this story before: An old woman finds a bottle labeled "Do Not Open", but when a child's voice comes from inside and says she is trapped, the old woman opens the bottle anyways. Then, she tricks the monster that escapes into turning into a mouse which her pet cat quickly gobbles down. I've liked other versions I've heard of better: this version makes it seem more like an accident that she tricked the monster, rather than her own wit.
