Description

Jake and his book from the library are placed in one sticky situation after another in this cumulative tale, an original adaptation of the classic There Was an Old Lady.
There's the drip, drip, drip, of a jelly mishap that leads to the lick, lick, lick of a lucky rat, whose luck runs out when he's caught by the cat, all before a dog shows up and that's that for the book Jake borrowed from the library! Repetitive phrases, onomatopoeia, and simple choruses make this an easy beginning for young readers while the cut paper and fabric collage illustrations add humorous depth to the sequence of unfortunate events and offer opportunities for hands-on related activities.
