Description

A tale to satisfy any appetite

In this lively retelling of a Japanese folktale, an old woman lives peacefully on a high hill -- until the day her rice dumpling slips from her hand and is claimed by a hungry ogre that lives inside her hill with a horde of other (all equally hungry) ogres. "Dump-lings Dump-lings " they chant as they crowd around her. The old woman can't outrun her ravenous captors, but can she outwit them?
