{Synopsis} – There was a cold lady who swallowed some snow. I don’t know why she swallowed some snow. Perhaps you know.

This time, the old lady is swallowing everything from snow to a pipe, some coal, a hat, and more! With rollicking, rhyming text and funny illustrations, this lively version will appeal to young readers with every turn of the page. And this time, there’s a surprise at the end no reader will be able to guess!

{My thoughts} – This book is much like all the other There Was An Old Lady Books that have come out. The illustrations are alright, they aren’t incredibly eye catching or appealing to younger babies as my one year old had zero interest in it. However, I can’t speak much for the older ages in which it is geared for. It is written in a rhyme/poetry form and flows quite well, however, it is a long read for a on year old and my daughter wasn’t too terribly interested in listening. She’d lost complete interest in it by the 5th page. Which I am sure is to be expected since it is above her age group.

My opinion of the book is that it is illustrated in accordance to the story within it’s pages. It is well thought out and well written. It is geared more towards older children that are able to sit still and listen to longer stories. I did enjoy the story, and think that any child that has grown to love There Was An Old Lady Books will love this story just as much.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
