L'Observateur calls There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Bugs a "Crowd Pleaser."


"One of the latest local books to hit the shelves is “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Bugs” by Johnette Downing. Downing is a New Orleans-based children’s author an entertainer. She performed at St. John the Baptist Parish public libraries this summer as part of the annual summer reading program.

With her latest book, Downing takes the familiar tale of the old lady who swallowed a fly and adds her own twist.

The uniquely illustrated book has a few things going for it. Children will enjoy both the singsong quality and the funny ending. It is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for months to come."
