Caryn Yacowitz - I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Dreidel

I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Dreidel

Author: Caryn Yacowitz; Illustrator: David Slonim

  • AGES 5 - 7 
  • Genre Poetry, Songs, Verse
A family drives through the snow to visit their beloved bubbe, who spreads out a Chanukah supper for everyone to enjoy. But one dish goes a little wrong: "I know an old lady who swallowed a dreidel, A Chanukah dreidel she thought was a bagel... Perhaps it's fatal." Indeed, Bubbe's first bite leads to an insatiable taste for oil, latkes, applesauce, gelt, and even menorahs! As the family tries to distract her from her appetite, the items she devours grow ever larger. Will they be able to reconnect with her and bring her home for the last night of Chanukah, or will her feasting go too far?
The illustrations offer humorous parodies of great artworks by Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hopper, Rockwell, Matisse, Picasso, and other masters, adding a whole new layer of fun and culture to the familiar tune.
