This book is based on the song There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. The dragon swallows a knight, steed, squire, cook, lady, castle, and a moat. At the end, he burps out everything except the knight. (It could have been worse.)
Oddly, the last picture shows him picking his teeth with the knight’s sword while the knight sits in a chair, a blanket over his lap, twirling his mustache.
The illustrations are cute, silly, and bright. The castle is pink!
This might be a fun edition to a child’s collection of medieval books. The rhyme is good, the vocabulary is enriching, and both the text and illustrations show humor.
