One of my favorites from when I was a child. Kids will think it is so crazy that she swallows a fly and ends up swallowing a horse.

This was one of my favorite books as a child. It is also a song. It talks about an Old who swallowed a fly in as a result she swallowed a great many other animals. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670869392, Hardcover)

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.
