Rachel Merriman was runner-up for the Pan MacMillan Student Prize.

In this retelling of a traditional Bengali trickster tale, the bear, tiger and jackal all want to eat the old woman, but she persuades them to eat her on her return from her journey, after she has eaten. And what of the red pumpkin? What part does that play in the story? That is her means of escape! Fully illustrated in colour.
