Getting to Know Simms Taback   ►

In this video Simms talked about the process and inspiration behind his creation of the Caldecott Honor-winning book There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly. Adapted from the lyrics of the famous folk rhyme of the same name, Simms used die-cuts and his legendary sense of color, design and lyricism to create this masterpiece of childrens literature.
