A quintessentially Canadian take on the old lady who swallows everything!

There was an old lady who swallowed a moose.

What's the use in swallowing a moose?

It won't come loose!

So she swallows a lake to wash out the moose, then some sticks to dam the lake, then a beaver and so on and so on . . . Before you know it, she's swallowed a mosquito that tickles and itches and makes the old lady squirm, wiggle and twitch until . . . she sneezes out a great Canadian campsite.

Young readers will enjoy the fun and zany progression of the old lady's antics. The unconventional humour with a true north setting will make this a book kids will want to sing over and over.
