There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly

This is definitely something you want to keep your children’s hands off of.

Designed & Illustrated by Jeremy Holmes, this beautiful gate-fold book has me wanting to buy 2 copies so I can keep one in pristine condition and one for my bedtime stories. I love the Spot UV detailing on the old lady, and the fact she closes her eyes at the end of the book (hate to spoil the ending, but she does die).

I’ve already ordered my copy from Waterstone’s (US readers can buy it direct from Chronicle Books).
