There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

by Simms Taback Illustrated by Simms Taback

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 his inventive die-cut artwork, Simms Taback, illustrator of The Road Builders, gives young readers a rollicking, eye-popping version of the well-loved poem.
