Summary
Set on the coast of the Pacific Northwest, this variation on the traditional cumulative rhyme describes the silly consequences of an old woman's fishy diet. A bright, energetic retelling of a beloved children's rhyme, with a Pacific Northwest twist. "There was an old lady who swallowed a trout That splished and splashed and thrashed about." Everyone has heard about the old lady who swallowed a fly, but there is something particularly fishy about this old lady ... Beautiful illustrations in this story capture the scenery and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest. The buoyant text jumps along as the old lady swallows a salmon, an otter, a seal, a walrus, and more, until eventually she swallows the entire sea and the trout swims free! With a unique and fascinating setting, this pure flight of fancy gives a fresh look to a familiar poem
