There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow!

There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow!

by Lucille Colandro Illustrated by Jared D. Lee

There was a cold lady who swallowed some snow. I don't know why she swallowed some snow. Perhaps you know.

This time, the old lady is swallowing everything from snow to a pipe, some coal, a hat, and more! With rollicking, rhyming text and funny illustrations, this lively version will appeal to young readers. And this time, there is a surprise at the end no reader will be able to guess!
