There was an old witch who wanted a bat....

And a mummy and a skeleton--her ghoulish list went on and on. Rhythmic text, spooky artwork, and a hint of suspense will have children howling in glee as they embark on this mischievous romp through an eerie but humorous landscape.

This spine-tingling, silly twist on the favorite nursery rhyme "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" is brought to life by the award-winning illustrator David Catrow. (summary from book jacket)
there_was_an_old_monster.jpg
Veteran children's author Ed Emberly, a Caldecott medalist, teams up with his daughter, Rebecca Emberly, also a best-selling children's author and illustrator, and his musician granddaughter Adrian Emberly in There Was An Old Monster!
Based on the traditional song of the woman who swallowed the fly, this fun, vividly illustrated book employs creative lyrics and a surprise ending that will delight young children.
Readers can also download the tune from the publisher's Web site.

Grandpa found a piece of clay and fashioned it into a boy. As soon as the clay boy dried out by the fire, he jumped up and cried, "I am here! I am hungry!" He ate and ate, and he grew and grew. He ate everything in sight, and before you knew it, he was a giant. Would you like to know what happened to him? (summary from book jacket)
