'His arresting scenes of the animal guzzling old lady show a wicked sense of humour' - Red Reading Hub

A beautiful picture storybook illustrating the nursery rhyme, there was an old lady who swallowed a fly.

One day an old lady swallows a fly and the only way she can get rid of it is to swallow a wriggling, tickling spider... For over a century this subversive 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 - bird, cat, dog, goat - grows.

Graboff's bright and startling illustrations combine beautifully with the traditional verse to bring this classic tale to life.
