It happens every fall. The leaves from the tall trees that surround her house drift down until the teeny tiny woman’s teeny tiny house is buried completely. Inside it’s dark and a teeny tiny bit scary, but the resourceful woman has a plan and a few surprises up her teeny tiny sleeve.
Written to be shared through read-aloud or story-telling, the type face indicates where the teller should be whispering and when suddenly s/he should shout surprising the listeners, even causing them to jump, which puts this book in the realm of jump-tales, so popular at spooky-story times like Halloween and around the campfire on summer evenings. Short enough for even young children to remember after reading or hearing the story a few times, the book encourages children themselves to tell the tale themselves, making a family tradition.
Former Disney Publishing executive, Lauren L. Wohl, tells an all-new story starring a favorite character from folklore with an autumnal chill and a special treat that brings the book to a perfect-for-Halloween ending. Children will want to return to the teeny tiny house again and again to enjoy Henry Cole’s illustrations that capture the mood and the humor of the tale.
Sure to be a perennial holiday favorite, like The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything," a book that makes the bestseller list every single Halloween!
Lauren L. Wohl combines two of her favorite things in The Teeny Tiny Halloween: her love of children’s books with the mix of just-a-little-scary and a lot of fun at Halloween. Lauren's career has been in children's book publishing, most recently at Macmillan as marketing director for Roaring Brook Press, and then Associate Publisher for Roaring Brook, Farrar Straus Giroux, and First Second Books. Lauren also was also a part of the small group that started the Walt Disney Company's vertically integrated publishing business, including Hyperion Books for Children and Disney Press, where she was VP of Marketing. Since Disney, Lauren has taken a break from publishing, but not from children's books. Lauren is a librarian and has served as a school librarian in the NYC public schools, and was also the director of James Patterson's ReadKiddoRead program. Lauren consults to children's publishers, including National Geographic, the Cornell Lab Publishing Group and Persnickety Press. A native New Yorker, Lauren lives with her husband in Miami Beach, Florida and Lenox, Massachusetts.
Henry Cole was a beloved elementary science and math teacher for many years before turning to the world of children’s publishing. Since then he has helped create over 120 books for children, including Jack's Garden, A Nest for Celeste, Big Bug, The Somewhat True Adventures of Sammy Shine, Brambleheart, Spot, the Cat, Unspoken: A Story from the Underground Railroad, And Tango Makes Three, by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell, and the Little Bo books written by Julie Andrews Edwards. Between working on books and traveling the country speaking to school audiences, he spends his time in his home state of Virginia.
