In the book There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell! by Lucille Colandro an old lady swallowed a shell. Then she swallowed a crab, then a fish, a gull, and a pail! She swallowed the crab so it would live in the shell in her stomach. She swallowed the fish so it would catch the crab. Then she swallowed the seagull to eat the crab. After that she swallowed a pail to carry the seagull. Will the old lady explode? Read the book to find out.

I like this book because it is funny. There is an old lady who swallowed a shell and she keeps eating stuff that she finds at the beach like a crab and a fish. I think the old lady is crazy. Whatever she sees, she eats.

I recommend that you read this book because it is so funny. The pictures are weird and crazy too. I think you will love this crazy book.
