I found out that There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly is a children song that is drawn by different illustrators – this is in fact one of the multiple existing versions.

The old lady swallows a fly, and then a spider to catch it and so on, like a black hole.

The rhyme is very nice and I think the images are colorful and fun: the madness of the old lady is opposed to the horror of the animals that show their disagreement in being swallowed by some comic’s balloons.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.

Ho scoperto che There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly è una canzoncina resa poi da diversi illustratori – questa è infatti una delle molteplici versioni esistenti.

La vecchia signora inghiotte una mosca, e poi un ragno per catturarla e così via, quasi un pozzo senza fondo.

La canzoncina è molto carina e trovo le illustrazioni colorate e ben riuscite: alla follia dell’anziana si contrappone l’orrore degli animali che comunicano il loro disappunto all’essere ingoiati tramite diversi fumetti.

Ringrazio l’editore per avermi fornito la copia necessaria per scrivere questa recensione.
