Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This picture book is a take on the old song "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly," but misses the point. There was a lady who liked to swallow things, but the reader is never sure why. She swallows sticks, hats, scarves and everything she thinks will keep her warm. The text lacks something, and the illustrations, while technically good, would not be interesting to a potential young reader. The surprise ending of the lady hiccupping up everything that she swallowed into a snowman, leads the reader to believe that the author ran out of things for the lady to swallow and decided to end the book. Not recommended for children who like to experiment with swallowing things. 2003, Scholastic,
— Jennifer-Lynn Draper
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-There was a cold lady who swallowed some snow, then a pipe, then coal, then a hat, and so forth. Written by Lucille Colandro (Scholastic, 2003), this title provides a different look at the old lady who swallowed a fly. Many such take-offs exist, and this is not the best of them. The items swallowed don't have a natural flow or sequence, as in other stories-the bird eating the spider eating the fly, for example. The rhyming is sometimes rather stiff as well, and the finale is quite predictable. That, however, is the book's strength. This is a story teachers will welcome for introducing the fine art of predicting outcomes. There are enough clues along the way that most students will know what's coming, and be delighted in being right when the cold lady hiccups up a snowman. The lively background music and enthusiastic narration by actor Skip Hinnant keep the story skipping merrily along to an unsurprising but fun ending that has a useful curriculum application.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    A Surprise Ending!

    This is a great version of the old lady who swallows... The illustrations are fun and the story fits like a puzzle when you read the end. My five children and I have this one in our collection of crazy ladies swallowing outrageous things! Add it to yours!
