An old favorite as you've never seen it before!
Everyone knows the song about the old lady who swallowed a fly, a spider, a bird, and even worse, but who's ever seen what's going on inside the old lady's stomach? With this inventive die-cut artwork, Simms Tabak gives us a rollicking, eye-popping version of the well-loved poem.
"Tom Chapin culminates this recording with an authentic, jaunty rendition of the favorite tune, but not before he has read the song as story. In doing this, he provides pauses to savor the details of Taback's work ... The pleasure is the listener's, as well as Chapin's." --このテキストは、ハードカバー版に関連付けられています。商品の説明をすべて表示する

This was one of the first books I put on my list.
I remember being mesmerized by it as a child and I loved the ending. The illustrations are crazy and especially fun for kids. There's a little bit of suspense in which each character will swallow next as the book goes on and it makes for many hilarious reactions when being read to kids - it would be especially fun to see this book read to a large group of kids... maybe at a library reading or something.
I can see my family wanting to read this book again and again, as I did when I was young. I am so glad it was so easy to find and purchase this book through amazon. I was able to cross a book on my list to purchase, at an inexpensive price, and that made me very happy.
Caution for parents who for some reason do not want any references to death in a young child's book: The refrain, "I guess she'll die" is repeated over and over, though the whole story deals with absurd situations and it is obvious that "real death" is not being spoken of.
I bought it because this was one of my favorite childhood books, and I cannot find the one I had. I want my kids to get the same enjoyment out of it one day, that I always did. I have looked off and on for years, and finally found this edition on here. There are other later editions, but this one is my favorite. Very pleased with the condition of the used book as well. It is basically new.
It is a cute story that tells of this old lady swallowing all of these animals, each time the animal gets larger. It rhymes and it funny. There is also a lot of other "Old Lady who swallows..." books that I did not know about until searching for this one on here. Future buys perhaps!
I still love this catchy story.
