Description

One day an old lady swallows a fly and the only way she can get rid of it is to then swallow a wriggling, tickling spider . . .
For more than a century, this deceptively simple rhyme has delighted children and parents alike. Its galloping rhythm is perfect for reading out loud, becoming a memory game as the list of animals grows--from fly and spider to bird, cat, dog, and goat. Abner Graboff's bright and startling illustrations combine beautifully with the original verse to bring this subversive, irreverent tale to life.
