There Was an Old... Pair

Forget swallowing flies! The hungry sea-dwellers in these funny rhymes – a pirate and a mermaid – have much bigger fish to fry. The mermaid starts out by swallowing a SHARK. And the pirate is equally greedy! She swallows a rope, a sword, an anchor and a map. But oh dear – will the map be a trap? And will the mermaid regret swallowing a shark? Will it leave a mark? Find out in these scrumptiously silly rhymes!
