SUMMARY: In this version of "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly," a martian buzzes about the universe eating things. He eats the moon, a cow, and even the sun. But then he is done.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created digitally. They are colorful, fun, and simplistic enough for the younger crowd.

THE GOOD: I very much enjoyed the fun of watching the martian zipping about eating things in space. Between eating things, there were words like, Blast off, Beep, and zoom, allowing for younger children to participate in the story. There are some new concepts such as a land rover and comet.
THE NOT AS GOOD: I would have liked a slightly longer book with more space concepts in it (why the cow?) Then it would have fit the age group.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Ages 4-6 would like this the best, especially children who love learning about space and making noises along with the story.
