As a preschool teacher, I knew from the title that is could be sung to the "I Know An Old Lady" tune, but wasn't sure about the content even after reading the description. I'm a HUGE fan of sing-along stories and the "I Know An Old Lady" books are no exception. I didn't know what to expect, but when I read through it, I was glad I bought it. So far, ny children [even the boys] have asked me to read it everyday [15 days and counting!]. I highly recommend it for any and everyone who loves sing-along stories and "I Know An Old Lady".

The book looked very cute and had potential, but it failed to produce a reason why she was eating all of the various items and people. The ending rhymes but that is it. It is not cute and does not come up with a reason behind eating the items like The Little Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves, Bat, etc...... books.

This book is a must-have for all little girls! I bought this for my 3-year-old daughter as we love "There Was an Old Lady." The rhymes in this book are hysterical and the illustrations are colorful and engaging. Highly recommend it!

My 4-year-old has this memorized. It's a fun, easy story that's a quick read before bedtime. Not a classic, but a fun little story.

Even at a discounted price, I am disappointed with a book that was so highly rated. Basically a rip-off of the old lady who swallowed a fly, but with a creepy little girl that eats people. 3 stars because my daughter thought it was funny that the girl burped a lot.

Good quality and great illustrations. Lots of silly giggles! I bought this book because my brother had been trying to sing the
original Old Lady Who swallowed a Fly to my niece and I thought she might find this book fun as well. She thought it was silly but wanted it read over & over.

My kids said, "Again! Again!" and I agree. The writing and artwork is A+. I found myself chuckling at some of the illustrations as well. We're very pleased with the purchase.

There Was an Odd Princess Who Swallowed a Pea by Jennifer Ward and illustrated by Lee Calderon is another in the large collection of "old lady" books. This book stars a cute princess who swallows all sorts of princessy things (like a rose and a pea and a throne) and then with each refrain she burps with glee (which makes the kids giggle and giggle). The illustrator placed a line with pictures of each thing in succession on each page making it easier to sing or read. This book is a hit with the kids and is one they request often (the boys enjoy it as well as the girls).

I recommend this book for kids 4-8
