Synopsis

A feline version of "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly" that will simply trip off your tongue--with a shoutable read-aloud refrain!

Once there was a cat, a fat, fat cat.
But was that cat fat enough? NO, HE WAS NOT!

He ate up a rat. He swallowed a dog. He even had an old lady for dessert (it's about time SHE got eaten!). But was that cat fat enough? NO, HE WAS NOT!

The adventures of this omnivorous feline are sure to inspire laughter and have young readers chiming in with the refrain. So will children be satisfied with just one reading?
NO, THEY WILL NOT!

The cat's pink-cheeked, innocent face and the animals' "quack quack quacking" and "squeak, squeak, squeaking" inside the cat's growing tummy obliterate any fears youngest readers might have about the gobbling menace.
