Auntie ‘Awcha is an old lady who lives all alone. She is kind and gentle and everyone in the village loves her. Auntie ‘Awcha has only one problem: she talks all the time! As soon as she meets someone she starts talking and doesn’t stop. Her neighbours and the shopkeepers can’t stand it anymore. But the day Auntie ‘Awcha disappears, everyone worries. Funnily enough, the villagers miss her gossiping away. This is a hilarious book with illustrations full of inventive silliness, particularly the little pieces of paper which fly out of Auntie ‘Awcha’s mouth when she chatters.
