Reviews - What do customers think about There Was an Old Lady (Classic Books With Holes)?

Love it!  Aug 5, 2008
Great book. Have always wanted it and I really enjoy reading it with my son who likes it too!
We don't pull it out often enough  Jun 24, 2008
Probably because I prefer to sing the song :)

It's very cleverly designed - every page you turn, you can see how the old woman is cramming more and more animals into her belly until the horse fills it entirely - then she's dead, of course! (And that's precisely why one should never swallow a horse.)

I don't mind, even remotely, the discussion of death. Why? Because most kids are creepy, morbid, bloodthirsty little creatures anyway, and this natural trait should really be encouraged. My little nieces sing that final line with relish, because it is quite silly - she ate a horse! She's dead! You should never eat horses!

Of course, if I try singing "You are my sunshine", they start crying. They don't want me to go away and never come back... or something.
Most Horrible Childrens Book EVER written  Apr 16, 2008
This is a horrible book.Why hasnt this horror story been banned.Tom Sawyer was banned in many schools.Wny hasnt this
Book review  Feb 5, 2008
The only thing I can complain about is the way the book is written makes it very hard to read because it is written in a circle format. I wish that they had just written it like a regualr book so it would be more easy to read. I would look for a different printing so that you could read it more eaisly. The book itself is great.
Really cute book  Feb 5, 2008
I can see why this book got the awards - it is beautifully illustrated and very fun to read. It's easy to read as is, or to remind you of the words to the song to sing to your little one(s). I would highly recommend this to anyone!
