Editor reviews

Skip Hinnant's buoyant, jovial performance of Lucille Colandro's There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow propels this clever reimagining of the popular There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.

This lighthearted tale will keep kids guessing as to why the Cold Lady decides to ingest an interesting assortment of wintry objects until the satisfying conclusion that ties everything together, and they will be entranced by Hinnant's animated delivery and the effortless flow of Colandro's whip-smart rhyming scheme.

Summary

Here's a new twist on the familiar tale of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly". This cold lady is swallowing everything from snow, to a pipe, some coal, and more! With rollicking, rhyming text and a hilarious ending, this lively version will appeal to young listeners everywhere.

Critic reviews

"The lively background music and enthusiastic narration by actor Skip Hinnant keep the story skipping merrily along to an unsurprising but fun ending that has a useful curriculum application." ( School Library Journal)
