A Squash And A Squeeze is an English original, written and illustrated by the award-winning team of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, the authors of The Gruffalo. This book is the chinese translated version.
An old lady stayed in a house but she was not satisfied with the size of her house. She felt that it was too small. She decided to consult a wise old man for advice on how she can make her house feel bigger. However, instead of telling her to remove things from her house, he told her to put her farm animals into the house, one by one... Read on to find out why he told her to do so....
There is a deeper meaning to this story. In this story, the old lady has lots of space in the house but it did not seem enough. It was not until all the animals took the space away from her that she realize her house is not that small afterall. Sometimes, happiness is around us but we do not appreciate it until we lost it.
