I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie

by Alison Jackson

THE OLD LADY who comes for Thanksgiving dinner has brought a mouthwatering pie... and a monstrous appetite! This ravenous relative doesn't even make it to the table before she has swallowed her own offering. Then down goes a jug of cider to moisten the pie (which was really too dry), then an entire squash, followed by a bowl of salad--and the whole darn turkey! The future looks murky after that turkey, but the old lady eats on and on in this outrageous fantasy of feasting-gone-wild. To the horror of her flabbergasted hosts and the delight of their children--and readers--the ever-expanding elder makes an unexpected but delightful contribution to the holiday festivities after all. This book is the perfect treat for anyone in need of a larger-than-life-size laugh.
