There Was An Old Gator Who Swallowed A Moth
Gators and panthers and crabs, oh my!
The classic cumulative tale There Was an Old Lady gets a Southern flourish in this charming adaptation. Down in the southern swamps a hungry gator accidentally swallows a moth. Of course, he swallows a crab to get the moth! What will he swallow next? The gator predictably continues swallowing bigger and bigger creatures until the unexpected happens--all over the page! Along the way to its hilarious ending, the story--strengthened by the delightful illustrations--introduces readers of all ages to the many critters, both big and small, of the swampland. With a familiar use of repetition and an abundance of rhythm, this silly story is perfect for read-aloud experiences.
