Book Review #160
The Funny Little Woman by Arlene Mosel, illustrations by Blair Lent
Rating: one star (out of four)

This book was kind of random.  It's called The Funny Little Woman, but they never did explain why she was so funny, she laughed a lot, but that's not really very funny.  When reading this book and the funny little woman is running after her rice ball, I am wondering why she is not heeding the advice of all the statues, warning her of the evil Oni, wouldn't you at least take that into account and just go home to make another rice ball? I didn't really see the point of this story, it was kind of weird.  The ending was a little off as well, I wouldn't recommend reading this book, it was just plain strange.
