There was an old lady who swallowed a cake. I don't know why she swallowed the cake. It was a mistake!
Scholastic's Old Lady is more popular than ever, and in celebration she's swallowing a cake... and a candle, and a sign, and some balloons, and a hat, and some gifts. Can you guess why?

With a brand-new spin-off series that launched in Spring 2018 alongside this first original 32-page fully illustrated board book, our Old Lady is poised to soar to even greater heights in 2019!
