How can youo not love an old lady who practically swallowed a farmyard???


Everyone knows the song about the old lady who swallowed a fly, a spider, a bird, and even worse, but who's ever seen what's going on inside the old lady's stomach?

Since they were first published thirty years ago, the Classic Books-with-Holes have become known and loved world-wide, with sales into the millions. This special board book edition shares the charm and fascination of the originals and is suitable for the smallest hands.

Ingenious die-cut holes where the lady's stomach should be bring this much-loved nursery rhyme to life - children love seeing where everything she swallows ends up as the story goes on! Pam Adams's illustrations lend humour and vibrancy to the proceedings.
