"There once was a cowpoke who swallowed an ant--
A fiery thing with a Texas-sized sting.
The cowpoke panted, and his voice got higher.
'Yippie-ti-yay! My stomach's on fire!!'" In this Texas-styled reworking of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly," a cowboy downs a variety of native Southwest creatures--a spider, a roadrunner, a lizard, an armadillo, a snake, a boar, and more--all to catch that ant! Another hilarious and vividly illustrated tale from the team behind Senorita Gordita and The Three Little Gators.
"Ketteman and Terry have lassoed the perfect combination of comedic language and art, making this new spin on an old tale worthy of a resounding 'Yee-haw!'" School Library Journal, March 2014
". . .it's a romping, regional retelling that introduces new animals to boot." Kirkus Reviews, January 15, 2014
