Product description

The vibrant traditional story is retold in a brilliant peephole format that lets little fingers explore to their hearts’ content! Building up suspense through lots of rhyme and repetition, it’s a great choice for reading aloud. Children love peeping into the old lady’s tummy to see the creatures wriggle and jiggle! She’s swallowed a fly, she’s swallowed a spider, she’s swallowed a cat… whatever next?
