There Was an Old Lady

\\\"A mysteriously popular subject for picture books, \\\'\\\'the old lady who swallowed a fly\\\'\\\' has never looked creepier or more inviting than in this striking book shaped like a slim tie-box. Two eyes at the top peer through plastic-covered spectacles, and as the story reaches the inevitable outcome...they suddenly shut--a wonderful comic effect that may cause squeals of delight.\\\"

There Was an Old Lady

, ìThis book is a testament to Jeremy Holmesí genuine devotion to books and the making of books, to the world of libraries and the value of their content. His work carries numerous allusions that the expert eye will pick up on and point out to young readers. The book is a consistent typographical delight that ranges from humorous, surreal 19th century references to the imaginary world of Alice, Holmesí willing accomplice, in an exercise that makes learning fun.î
