There was an old lady

One of my favourite books growing up had to be There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. I’ve seen it done in a variety of forms since, and it never fails to interest kids when I read it in storytime, but a new version put out by Mutt Ink with illustrations by Jeremy Holmes is sure to entice readers back to the tale, even if they’ve long since gone past the reading level.  The latest version is a flip book of sorts, with the old lady’s head remaining throughout and the contents of her stomach as she swallows various objects visible as you flip through the book.
