In this book, there was an old lady. She swallowed a fly, and then she swallowed a lot of other animals. Every time, the animals got bigger and bigger. At the end, she died!

I liked this book because it is funny. I liked when she got really fat. I liked the illustrations because the old lady's dress had a lot of beautiful colors that I like. The colors are bright! Seeing her eat all those animals made me think it was gross!

I would recommend this book to all the people because it will make them laugh to see the lady eating all those animals! Each page has a hole in it so you can see everything she ate!
