This book is all about an old lady who swallowed a fly. She then continues to swallow a whole bunch of other animals to catch that animal. This is a cool interaction book with the holes in it to help foreshadow what animal is going to be swallowed next. The absurd illustrations match the words perfectly for the book. ( )

I'm pretty sure this is the book version I read as a kid, although nothing beats the Burl Ives version. It was such an appealing tale as a child.

Book description
"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."
Haiku summary
She opens her mouth/ bird and beasts glide down her throat/ now she's dead, of course (caileen)
