Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A bright, energetic retelling of a beloved children's rhyme, with a Pacific Northwest twist.

"There was an old lady who swallowed a trout

That splished and splashed and thrashed about."

Everyone has heard about the old lady who swallowed a fly, but there is something particularly fishy about this old lady . . .

Beautiful illustrations in this story capture the scenery and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest. The buoyant text jumps along as the old lady swallows a salmon, an otter, a seal, a walrus, and more, until eventually she swallows the entire sea and the trout swims free! With a unique and fascinating setting, this pure flight of fancy gives a fresh look to a familiar poem.

Synopsis:

Everyone has heard about the old lady who swallowed a fly, but there is something particularly fishy about this old lady. Beautiful illustrations in this story capture the scenery and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest.

My two year old grandson loves this book. He is of course familiiar with the song it comes from. The pictures are delightful, very colorful; she keeps getting bigger and bigger with every sea creature she swallows. It has a happier ending than the song.
