There Was An Old Mozzie Who Swallowed A Lady by P. Crumble
Published by Scholastic Australia
Another delightfully funny story from the dynamic duo of Paul Crumble and Louis Shea.
This book is a quirky sequel to There was an old woman who swallowed a mozzie and the latest addition to the collection of stories that are based on the traditional folk song There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
With titles in the collection, such as There was an old lady who swallowed a thong and There was an old man who swallowed a chook, Crumble and Shea have created their own Aussie versions of this catchy rhyme which appeal to young and old.
The animated and exaggerated expressions on the characters, particularly the old woman, makes every page an adventure in itself. Combined with wonderful rhyming text, good – sized font and bright colours this book will delight readers and listeners of all ages and it’s nice to see the mozzie get its revenge, but does he? You will have to read the book to find out.
Great story to read out loud to any age.
