A slightly different take on the classic folk song “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly” with a new, kid-friendly ending, I Know an Old Lady is a picture book for children featuring the iconic old lady that can’t stop eating the strangest things! With memorable lyrics, absurd illustrations, and die-cut elements that grow and grow until the old lady’s stomach is filled with bizarre objects, this silly children’s book will delight both kids and parents!


A new take on an old classic that many readers would have grown up listening to, or reciting themselves. Reading this book was a treat for me as well as the children. The Burgeoning Bookshelf

Brilliant, hilarious and vibrant. It's a beautiful and interactive book that promises plenty of joy and fun while reading it. It will definitely grab a child's attention.Snezana Ivanisevic, Book Reviewer, Book Lifey
