  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ♥ Susan Dodge-Doak | 2/9/2014

    " If you were searching for an-old-lady-vomits-an-Easter-basket book, you've found it. Having said that, the kids enjoyed it, and it is fairly humorous. I can see it offending some, however -- being a bit over the top. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittney | 1/27/2014

    " This is a great book. I remember reading books like this one back when I was younger. I would use this in a first grade classroom. Students would read about an old lady who swallows a bunch of items that have to do with Easter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 1/24/2014

    " This was like there is a whole in the bottom of the sea. Every page has a new step added. It was a fun book for younger elementary students. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 gina | 1/15/2014

    " Eh... it was okay. I didn't like the drawings and the story wasn't amusing to me. I could see how a little bitty kid might find it amusing but there are so many better children's books out there I wouldn't buy this one or pick it up on my own for my child. I'm just not a big fan of stupid people who eat things they shouldn't lol. Also, if I ever read this to a child (which they'd have to make me) I'd feel the need to give a lecture on why you don't put things in your mouth you're not supposed to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chocoholic | 1/8/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 11/18/2013

    " Based on the old lady who swallowed a fly, this rendition has the old lady swallow a chick, then straw, an egg, candy, basket, and bow. It became evident that an Easter basket was being constructed. And what happened to it? Read the book to find out. ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saashya Rodrigo | 11/10/2013

    " This lady has a serious case of pica! I read far too into these children's books about eating-- I think they give out a bad message to our already obese society. But, like I said, I read far too into these books. Overall, very cute series of books. "
