I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie by Alison Jackson
Book DescriptionBinge out on this hilarious take-off with a Thanksgiving angle. Children will love this hilarious take-off on the popular cumulative poem "I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly." With its theme of feasting-gone-wild, it's the perfect Thanksgiving treat that will remain fresh all year long. The old lady who comes for dinner has brought a mouthwatering pie and a monstrous appetite!The ravenous relative doesn't even make it to the table before she has devoured her own offering.Then down goes a jug of cider to moisten the pie (which was really too dry), then an entire squash, followed by a bowl of salad and the whole darn turkey! The future looks murky after that turkey, but the old lady eats on .The outrageous ending is as satisfying as an extra dollop of whipped cream on a Thanksgiving pie who would have thought the old lady had something more to offer her horrified hosts, after all? Judith Byron Schachner's quirky, energetic illustrations are loaded with funny details and child appeal, embel- lishing a book that will delight anyone in need of a larger-than-life-size laugh.
