From the Publisher

Oh what a pity, what a pity pity pity! With this refrain, the old woman in the vinegar bottle complains until she gets a cottage ... then a row house ... then a mansion ... How far will she move up before she''s satisfied? Storyteller and children''s librarian Margaret Read MacDonald pairs a whiny old woman with a no-nonsense fairy in a comical tale of ever-expanding greed and its natural result. Nancy Dunaway Fowlkes''s expansive India ink and watercolor illustrations capture MacDonald''s high-spirited rendering of this old British fairy tale.
