There was an old witch who wanted a bat,begins this Halloween variant of the classic children s song, I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, following the eponymous witch as she captures or creates a parade of successively larger creatures, in the pursuit of her pteropine prey And why, exactly, does she want this bat Well, to learn that, the reader must finish the rhyme Although I wouldn t say that There Was an Old Witch was a personal favorite, when it comes to the slew of Halloween books I ve been reading of late, I believe that young readers will enjoy its combination of zany text and humorously spooky illustrations David Catrow, whose illustrations I first encountered in Kathryn Lasky s She s Wearing a Dead Bird on Her Head , creates one amusing scene after another here, making this a book his fans will want to peruse This was an entertaining parody of the There was an old lady who swallowed a fly song I liked the rhymes because they were amusing and fitted in with the halloween feeling of the story I wasn t completely enthralled with this book though, so I d only recommend if you were a big halloween fan Taken from my book reviews blog Oh she is such an ugly witch in a cute sort of way.I liked everything about her She can come to my house for a cup of brew. This was a repetitious rhyming text, much like the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly rhythmic poems This would fun with younger audiences around Halloween time. There Was An Old Witch Who Wanted A Bat And A Cat, A Skeleton, A Mummy, A Werewolf, A Haunt The List Goes On And On Children Will Cackle As Their Funny Bones Are Tickled By This Mischievous Romp Through A Ghoulish But Humorous Landscape A Rhythmic Read Aloud Text, Paired With The Illustrations Of Award Winning Artist David Catrow, Are Sure To Make This Book A Halloween Favorite A take off on There Was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly, There Was an Old Witch is told in rhyme scheme The first page reads There was an old woman who wanted a bat, I know why she wanted a bat, but I won t tell you that So absolutely fun, madeso by David Catrow s whimsical pictures of a grimacing witch, hanging bat, snarling cat, and one eyed creature This is perfect fare for Halloween, but it s just perfect for any time you want to have some fun. I really like the pictures There is a lot to look at This book rhymes and is a great read for young children.Sawyer just read this book to me and he wanted to give it 5 stars We had fun finding the bat on each page This book reminded him of the Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly The pictures are great Sept 24, 2014 This is a truly bizzare take on the Old Lady This time it s a witch, but she doesn t actually swallow anything, she just captures things The animation is very detailed and colourful, but hard for children to pin point certain things The story is odd and really has no purpose when you get to the end Probably one of the worst of the Old Lady books. I love how this is a twist of the old nursery rhyme There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly The artwork of this book is creepy enough for the Halloween holiday I do feel, however, that the artwork might be a little scary for really young children between the ages of two and three. The book had great illustrations I loved the style of art The story was funny and silly at the same time I liked how one thing led to another.
