I know an old lady who swallowed a fly  Cover Image Book Book

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly / songs by Alan Mills ; illustrated by PisHier.

Mills, Alan, 1912-1977 (Added Author). PisHier, (illustrator.). Hellman, Thomas, (performer.). Clepper, Emilie, (performer.).


"Get to know a quirky old lady who swallows a heap of animals--from a dog, cat, bird and spider to that infamous little fly. The children's classic, for which singer-songwriter Alan Mills is best known, sets the table for more timeless folk tunes, written over 50 years ago. Tongue-in-cheek and smart at heart, this buffet of singalong alphabet, counting and rhyming songs is as jaw-droppingly silly as it is devourable"--Provided by publisher.
