"There once was a cowpoke who swallowed an ant—
A fiery thing with a Texas-sized sting.
The cowpoke panted, and his voice got higher.
'Yippie-ti-yay! My stomach’s on fire!!'” In this Texas-styled reworking of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly," a cowboy downs a variety of native Southwest creatures—a spider, a roadrunner, a lizard, an armadillo, a snake, a boar, and more—all to catch that ant! Another hilarious and vividly illustrated tale from the team behind Senorita Gordita and The Three Little Gators.
