An Old Lady, A Worm and a Few Other Critters, is an old folk rhyme that has been rewritten
with a South Florida twist. All of the plants and animals depicted in this humorous book are
indigenous to the Florida Everglades. The original illustrations were linoleum cuts and eraser
stamps scanned into the computer, digitally enhance and output to an ink jet printer. The
structure of the book is a tunnel book with thecenter of each page cut out. The pages are
attached at the sides with accordion panels that contain the text of the rhyme. The entire
book extends like an accordion so the viewer can look from one page to the next through
the center holes, viewing all 8 pagessimultaneously. The tunnel book structure emphasizes
thelandscape theme of the illustrated pages.
