There was an old giant who swallowed a clock.
He had such a shock when he swallowed that clock!
But then he swallows his knitting to muffle the clock, and swallows some moths to munch through his knitting! Will he ever stop?
With a riotous rhyming text from Becky Davies (The Three Little Pugs and the Big Bad Cat and Old MacDino had a Farm) this hilarious retelling of the classic nursery rhyme,There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, is brought to life with peep-through pages and quirky illustrations from Elina Ellis.
Becky is a children's book editor and sometimes author from the South West of England. Her favourite things are animals, books about magic, and anything sparkly. In a parallel universe she lives in Hawaii, where she works in a dog sanctuary and surfs until the sun sets beyond the horizon.
"This takes the fun one step further and swaps the old biddy for a giant, the insect for a clock and some knitting to stifle the ticking…"
