I thought the story was really humorous and creative. I loved the illustrations and the circular sentence on the left page. I really enjoyed it

Earlier in the summer I came across this book and I added it to my picture book collection, probably to use for story times at the library. It's basically a variation of "there was an old lady who swallowed a fly..." rhyme which, in itself, is pretty bizarre and this one is just as whimsically funny.

Just read this one to my class--they were thoroughly entranced by the book! They loved the cut-outs on each page that showed the sea creatures the old lady swallowed, and they really enjoyed listening to the CD which came with the book!

A seafaring take on the old lady who swallowed the fly. The cool thing about this book is there are progressively bigger cut outs to show the procession of animals she swallows.
