‘There was an old lady who swallowed a mozzie,
I don’t know why she swallowed that mozzie ...
She’s gotta be Aussie!’
As a fan of both Shea and Crumble, I haven’t always loved the books in this series, but this one is really enjoyable. Crumble’s rhyme is smooth and the rhythm works really well. This makes it fun and easy to read aloud.
Shea’s unique bold and bright illustrations, along with his trademark expressive animals, are humorous without the tinge of darkness which appear in some of the other books in this series.
This is my favourite book in the series and well worth a look. Check out how the old lady manages to catch the dingo and the croc.
Young children will have a lot of fun with this book.
