    Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

  • The Book

    This fun board book is one that kids will love.  It is an updated version with a positive ending unlike the classic folk song that it is based on.   

An old lady compulsively eats very bizzare things: a small fly, spider, bird, cat, dog, goat, cow, and finally a horse.  That's a whole lot of absurdity that will make kid's giggle I'm sure.  

The illustrations with die-cut elements are very well done and enrich the story greatly.  This book will be enjoyed by both young and old as it is shared together.  Miller is a published author and illustrator of several children’s books, including What Happens to a Hamburger?, the Sticker Stories Series, The Monster Health Book, and more!  I recommend this book.
