There Was an Old Sailor by Claire Saxby by Cassandra Allen
There Was an Old Sailor by Claire Saxby by Cassandra Allen will be published on March 1, 2014. This is an advance review of this story.
There Was Old Sailor is a new spin on the classic "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly”. The sailor swallows a krill; he doesn’t want to get ill so he swallows a jellyfish to catch the krill. Then one swallow leads to another. As each thing he swallows gets bigger and bigger.
I enjoy read this new take on "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly” as it’s a favorite of mine. I found the new rhymes a joy to read. Furthermore, the illustrations are a great part of this book and were a pleasure to look at while reading. In addition, to this story at the end of this book there are fish facts about the sea creatures that the old sailor had swallowed. The joys of new rhymes will fill the air with laughter. As well make the children wonder what the old sailor will swallow next. Children who love rhymes and the sea will enjoy this story.
