There Was an Old Lady

One day an old lady swallows a fly and the only way she can get rid of it is to swallow a wriggling, tickling spider...

For over a century this subversive rhyme has delighted children and parents alike. Its galloping rhythm is perfect for reading out loud, becoming a memory game as the list of animals – bird, cat, dog, goat – grows. Graboff's bright and startling illustrations combine beautifully with the traditional verse to bring this classic tale to life.
