There Was An Old Martian Who Swallowed the Moon written by Jennifer Ward and illustrated by Steve Gray (2015)
In the classic style of the old woman who swallowed a fly, this martian is zipping and zooming all over the universe to fill his belly. He swallows the moon, a cow, a comet, a spaceship, a rover,and even Mars. But when he swallows the sun… he’s done!
Skip the potatoes and pass the moon please. Scoop it up with a spoon and beep – beep your way across the galaxy. Catch the rhythm and blast off with this cute little Martian into another cumulative digestive rhyme!
Afterwards try a little out-of-this-world cooking of your own. You may find more than one treat you want to eat. Just be sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew!
