well, there's nothing special or well written about this book. it is by and lathe plot driven so kids will moat likely enjoy it. uncle nick is introduced to the family. I do like that lucy gets mad at Tom for killing a spider.

Tom and Lucy hooked up the microphone and made it sound like the radio and they said, "If little people are living in your walls do not pick them up they will bite you. If you figure out that little people are living in your walls just call 4080." Mr. Big set it on speaker so it taped what they said but they had a pet mouse and they made him scatter around so the Bigs didn't listen and tried to catch the mouse.

I hadn't thought of this book in years, but remembered it yesterday when my sister referred to it as a book "from our childhood" when telling me the titles of all the books about the Littles that my nephew has in his collection. I don't remember the plot, but I remember the title and the cover. If it was around the house before I went off to college, I read it.

I loved the Littles books when I was a child and am now sharing them with my children. The plot is pretty simple but that is probably the appeal for young children. I don't think I read this one as a child so I was surprised to learn what the "great scare" was in the book. My children found it funny too!

52 months - A. nice short Halloween read. O is enjoying The Littles so we'll have to read more of them. We also used this book to learn larger numbers. She would read the page number at the start of each chapter. We've done this a couple times and she's pretty much got her big numbers to one hundred down.

This was a good one to read to the kids before Halloween, especially since it wasn't scary!

It was kind of scary because they had to stay in a jack-o-lantern for a while.

We just finished this as our nightly read-aloud. I didn't love and the kids weren't that into it either. The writing and storyline are not awesome.

The Littles play a trick on their uncle by saying that tiny people have been discovered in the wall. L.K.
