Lucille Colandro, a former high school English teacher from West Pittston, Pennsylvania, is the author of the There Was an Old Lady series. She wrote her first the Old Lady book, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat!, when an editor asked for a Halloween book that wasn’t too scary for little kids. Since then, Lucille has gone on to write more than 15 books in this bestselling series. The rhyming text, silly stories, and hilarious illustrations have made Old Lady a kid-favorite. Lucille enjoys reading and working in New York City.
