Cover art by Ana Bermejo. There Was an Old Lady who Gobbled a Skink released on February 2, 2016.

There was an old lady who gobbled a skink. And a worm and a pail and a line and an oar and much more in this hilarious book ...

A wonderfully humorous take on a classic nursery rhyme by Tamera Will Wissinger, accompanied by Ana Bermejo’s fun-filled illustrations, this story will delight children, adults, and all those who like fishing. It’s perfect for reading aloud and sure to be read (and perhaps even sung) again and again.

Intended for preschool-aged children, this silly story is sure to be a fun read-aloud both at home or at school/daycare. It's also the ideal gift for kids whose parents or grandparents love to fish or to explore the outdoors and might even inspire a few to try fishing at some point (hopefully without gobbling any of the tackle!)

What Reviewers Say:

"This fun tale will have kids laughing and asking "one more time please!'"

"The layout is simplistic and the pencil crayon drawings against mostly white backgrounds work perfectly as the story develops and the old lady gobbles up more objects. A great little book and the last few pages made me laugh out loud – brilliant!"

"This is a terrific read aloud, particularly for children who love silliness, fishing and the water."
