STAFF PICK



I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie by Alison Jackson



One of my favorite silly food stories is I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie by Alison Jackson, with illustrations by Judith Byron Schachner. Its a Thanksgiving story, but kids will enjoy it year-round.



The old lady who comes for Thanksgiving dinner has brought a mouthwatering pie and a monstrous appetite!



To the horror of her flabbergasted hosts and the delight of their children and readers the ever expanding elder makes an unexpected contribution to the holiday festivities.



This book is the perfect treat for anyone needing a larger-than-life-size laugh.
