There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Trout

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Trout Cover

 

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.
