Young Reader Reaction: They like repeating the sounds the various clothes make as they follow the little old lady on her walk home: two shoes go CLOMP CLOMP, one pair of pants go WIGGLE WIGGLE, one shirt goes SHAKE SHAKE, etc.
Adult Reader Reaction: Pretty good story, and fund. The little old lady stands up to the spooky clothes and eventually puts them to her use as her new scarecrow.
