Picture Book Review: I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie, by Alison Jackson (Author) and Judy Schachner (Illustrator)


I know an old lady who swallowed a pie, a Thanksgiving pie, which was really too dry.

And with that the feast begins! After the pie the old lady swallows a
whole squash, all of the salad, and the entire turkey! As Mother and
Father watch in shock, the two children are delighted to see the old
lady growing fatter and fatter. And, in the end, the old lady makes a
surprising and humorous contribution to the holiday festivities.


Be prepared to laugh this Thanksgiving!  I Know and Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie is a hilarious romping good time.  

A Thanksgiving twist on the old song, I Know an Old Woman That Swallowed a Fly, this picture book will be sure to please!  The old woman stuffs more and more ridiculous things down her throat as she grows larger and larger.  

The writing and illustrations are perfect together and combine to make one quirky and hilarious book.
