In a flavorful twist on the popular traditional tale, this particular little old lady continues to swallow many more disgusting, squeal-inducing flying insects and creepy crawlers such as a poached roach, a squiggly worm, a slimy slug, and many more icky bugs!
This fun, brightly-colored book provides a less concerning alternative to the possible fate of the original little old lady. The repeated phrase of “perhaps she’ll die” has been replaced with “perhaps she’ll cry” making this a much more child-friendly version. This new phrase provides an opportunity for the reader to invite the listeners to participate in a little crying together. Boo hoo hoo!
Along with the author’s vague description of the little old lady, this book’s bold and colorful collage-style illustrations add to the mystery of who this bug-eating woman could be. The vibrant illustrations show each unlucky creature as it is introduced to a bright pink tongue and menacing white teeth. No other clues! Just a tongue and some teeth. Who could be munching down on these wiggly, jiggly bugs?
Soon the creatures all find themselves inside the little old lady’s stomach with everyone waiting and wondering what will happen next! And this is where we will leave you now.
This isn’t just any little old lady!
