News From Planet B.J….

Gators and panthers and crabs, oh my! The classic cumulative tale There Was an Old Lady gets a
Floridian flourish in this charming adaptation. Down inthe southern swamps a hungry gator accidentally
swallows a moth. Of course, he swallows a crab to get the moth! What will he swallow next? The gator
predictably continues swallowing bigger and bigger creatures until the unexpected happens―all over the
page! Along the way to its hilarious ending, the story―strengthened by the delightful illustrations―
introduces readers of all ages to the many critters, both big and small, of the Florida swamp. With a
familiar use of repetition and an abundance of rhythm,this silly story is perfect for read-aloud experiences.
