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

There was an old lady who swallowed a puck.
What rotten luck! She swallowed a puck.
And now it's stuck.

So down goes a goalie to save the puck, followed by a mask, two gloves, a stick, a net, the rink, some fans, the Cup, a ref, and some players. Soon, the old lady's belly is swaying and shaking with the hockey game she's just swallowed!

The rhyming text, over-the-top silliness, and hockey action will make this book a favourite to be read aloud again and again.
