Hard to Find


We all remember the old lady who swallowed a fly, a spider, a cat, a dog, a cow, and a horse. Now we know how she did it! Rashin’s colorful and comedic illustrations take you mid-gulp to mid-belly as the animals are swallowed whole. Her devoted cat tries to help: “Stop!” “Don’t eat it.” “Try this!” But when the old lady grabs the cat—it’s every beast for itself: “Eat the dog!” And when the old lady cheers: “Catch it!”—the critters leap into action to catch the one that was swallowed before.
