Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-In this fun retelling of the popular rhyme, the omnivorous old lady is an astronaut. She starts off by eating the moon, a star, a planet, a comet, a meteoroid, a rocket, and, eventually, a satellite. It is then revealed that it was her imagination and that all this time she was in a planetarium observing space up above from the museum. Each rhyming ­sentence is followed by a true fact about the item being swallowed. The exaggerated ­cartoon drawings highlight the nonsensical elements of the story, and more detailed material about the celestial bodies is appended. VERDICT A great introduction to early readers who are beginning to learn about space, who will laugh about the ­adventures of the old astronaut and learn valuable information at the same time. Great for school and library ­collections.-­Annmarie Braithwaite, New York Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Praise for There Was An Old Astronaut Who Swallowed the Moon!:

"Colandro offers an enjoyable readaloud filled with outer space facts, including back matter with vocabulary definitions and a search-and-find activity." -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for There Was An Old Mermaid Who Swallowed a Shark!:

"This underwater romp is at once funnier and more educational than 'There Was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly.' Verdict: The rare book that's perfect for at-home reads and rereads as well as for storytime." -- School Library Journal
