“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. It’s 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.
