There was an old mermaid who swallowed a shark. I don't know why she swallowed a shark, but it left no mark!

Scholastic's bestselling Old Lady is starring in a brand-new adventure series that will make you laugh AND learn! In this new spin-off, the Old Lady turns into an Old Mermaid, travels down into the ocean, and swallows a shark . . . and a squid, and a fish, and an eel, and a crab, and a sea star, and a clam . . . Why? Well, it was fun to cram her mouth with a clam!

Two new characters lead the reader through this hilarious adventure while exchanging some awesome facts about the creatures down under for a light take on nonfiction that's perfect for this age. With expanded sea creature back matter and a search-and-find game at the end, this Old Mermaid is making quite a splash!

"There was an old mermaid who swallowed a shark. I don't know why she swallowed the shark, but it left no mark."

THERE WAS AN OLD MERMAID WHO SWALLOWED A SHARK is a humorous read where an old mermaid swallows all types of sea creatures. It starts with a shark and then ends with a clam.

The story reads like a song and flows perfectly with its rhymes. The rhymes are clever and it was all well put together. I also love how at the end it has facts about the sea creatures included in the story. There's even a search and find activity in the back.


Final Verdict: This book gives you more than just a story and I would recommend it to children who like sea creatures, animals, funny stories, and activities.
