Review: There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly by Rashin Kheiriyeh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
We all remember the old lady who swallowed a fly, a spider, a cat, a dog, a cow, and a horse. Now we know how she did it! Rashin s colorful and comedic illustrations take you mid-gulp to mid-belly as the animals are swallowed whole. Her devoted cat tries to help: Stop! Don t eat it. Try this! But when the old lady grabs the cat it s every beast for itself: Eat the dog! And when the old lady cheers: Catch it! the critters leap into action to catch the one that was swallowed before."
This version of There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly by Rashin is so wonderfully ridiculous there is no way not to love it. The story is about the same hilarious mess as always, but the illustrations will have young and old readers alike rolling on the floors holding their sides.
HILARIOUS rhyme full of fun and hilarity.
