Hello. Long time, no blogpost.

FINALLY I have broken up from school for half term, lasting a week (a week filled with lots of homework).

I have decided to take some time off from the long hours of homework, and want to write about one of the books which I find most amusing and have always loved: The Teeny Tiny Woman.

For those of you who haven’t heard of it, you haven’t lived. 🙂
It was very upsetting for me when I tried to find my copy of the story earlier today, and then found that I couldn’t find it. 😦 But luckily, I have managed to find the story online, and although it isn’t as good as having the book, it’ll do for the moment.

Below, I have copied out the story from here, so do enjoy reading it!

***

Once upon a time there was a teeny-tiny woman who lived in a teeny-tiny house in a teeny-tiny village. Now, one day this teeny-tiny woman put on her teeny-tiny bonnet, and went out of her teeny-tiny house to take a teeny-tiny walk. And when this teeny-tiny woman had gone a teeny-tiny way, she came to a teeny-tiny gate; so the teeny-tiny woman opened the teeny-tiny gate, and went into a teeny-tiny churchyard. And when this teeny-tiny woman had got into the teeny-tiny churchyard, she saw a teeny-tiny bone on a teeny-tiny grave, and the teeny-tiny woman said to her teeny-tiny self, “This teeny-tiny bone will make me some teeny-tiny soup for my teeny-tiny supper.” So the teeny-tiny woman put the teeny-tiny bone into her teeny-tiny pocket, and went home to her teeny-tiny house.

Now when the teeny-tiny woman got home to her teeny-tiny house, she was a teeny-tiny bit tired; so she went up her teeny-tiny stairs to her teeny-tiny bed, and put the teeny-tiny bone into a teeny-tiny cupboard. And when this teeny-tiny woman had been to sleep a teeny-tiny time, she was awakened by a teeny-tiny voice from the teeny-tiny cupboard, which said:

“Give me my bone!”

And this teeny-tiny woman was a teeny-tiny frightened, so she hid her teeny-tiny head under the teeny-tiny clothes and went to sleep again. And when she had been to sleep again a teeny-tiny time, the teeny-tiny voice again cried out from the teeny-tiny cupboard a teeny-tiny louder,

“Give me my bone!”

This made the teeny-tiny woman a teeny-tiny more frightened, so she hid her teeny-tiny head a teeny-tiny further under the teeny-tiny clothes. And when the teeny-tiny woman had been to sleep again a teeny-tiny time, the teeny-tiny voice from the teeny-tiny cupboard said again a teeny-tiny louder,

“Give me my bone!”

And this teeny-tiny woman was a teeny-tiny bit more frightened, but she put her teenty-tiny head out of the teeny-tiny clothes, and said in her loudest teeny-tiny voice, “TAKE IT!

“Give me my bone!”

This story has always made me laugh, as it is such a pointless and humorous story, and the “TAKE IT!” at the end just finishes it off so cleverly, going against the rest of the “teeny tiny” character of the Teeny tiny woman. The reader doesn’t expect the Teeny tiny woman to react in such a way, and even after reading it many times, it is still such an amusing book.
