About this book

Hipoint Text Input EditorA 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.
