There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight: Penny Parker Klostermann

Rather than an Old Lady and a Fly, how about an Old Dragon and a Knight? Penny Parker Klostermann's work is a delight, full of surprise and fun solutions. Ben Mantle's illustrations add to the hilarity. 

"With all of that water, he started to bloat.
And that's when the dragon roared and I quote:

'Okay, enough! I have had enough--
More than enough of this swallowing stuff!

Maybe I've been a tad impolite.
Perchance I should only have swallowed the knight.'" 

Find this adorable twist and enjoy each and every page.
