There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Trout!

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Trout!

by Teri Sloat Illustrated by Reynold Ruffins

Eye-popping, full-color paintings capture the scenery and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest in this energetic recasting of a favorite children's rhyme. The buoyant text bobs along as the old lady swallows a salmon, an otter, a seal, a walrus — until eventually she swallows the entire sea and the trout swims free! This pure flight of fancy gives a fresh twist to a familiar song.
