In The Old Woman Who Lived in a Vinegar Bottle, an old woman is happy living in her old vinegar bottle house, until one day she saves a charming fish prince who grants her wishes in return.

At first the old woman's wishes are humble -- a hot dinner and a little cottage -- but as she asks for more and more extravagant things she forgets how happy she used to be in her little vinegar bottle house with just herself and her cat. Can her wishes truly bring her happiness?

This traditional tale is adapted with charm and humor by Rumer Godden, one of the twentieth-century's best-loved writers, while the beautiful artwork of best-selling illustrator Mairi Hedderwick, creator of Katie Morag, gives the story a beautiful twist!

Featuring beautiful landscapes and lively characters, The Old Woman Who Lived in a Vinegar Bottle is a wonderful traditional tale to share with young children.
