There was an old lady who swallowed a mozzie Reviews
5 year old grandson enjoyed it but me not so much.
My 4 year old son thought this book was hilarious. He was constantly searching for the mozzie in the woman's belly and pointing it out. It was quite an "aussie" sense of humor and I quite enjoyed it too. His first response when I read out the title was "Yuck. A Mozzie!" Which is how we all feel in situations like that, but even worse if it'd been a fly - yuck! But he got really into it and was shouting out "She must be Aussie" at all the right moments. It was a good book to enjoy together and get him involved.Gabriel said: She got fat because she ate too much. My favourite part was the snake. She sucked it like spaghetti. She must be Aussie!
My wife HATED this one, but but baby son (and especially me) really got into it.Total rip-off of the "old lady who swallowed a fly version" - which we also love - but this Australianised version has the fantastically detailed (and gross!!!) illustrations of the swallowing...and (spoiler alert!) SPEWING. Instant classic. Just don't read it too soon after dinner.9/10
This Australianised version of "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly" has some very quirky Aussie comedy. Exaggerates the absurdity of the original tale. Enjoyed the slang and the illustration lifted the humour to another level.
This sort of book could only be written and illustrated in Australia. The illustrations wonderfully depict the struggle of the animals within the old lady's stomach in an exaggerated manner.
I'm not a great fan of the song, which seems to be a perennial favourite in picturebook world, but the illustrations are awesome.
Great Aussie take in there was an old lady who swallowed a fly
