There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe

There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe

"There was an old woman who lived in a shoe, she had so many children she didn't know what to do," goes the nursery rhyme. In this single comic panel we find out just why the old woman felt exasperated enough to "whip them all soundly" and send hem off to bed. The children always have a riotous time, whether they are playing in the garden, having fun in a farmyard, enjoying a tea party or just running around in the garden.
