  14. 14. Classic Books with Holes 14 Happy 40th Birthday! In 1972 Michael Twinn commissioned Pam Adams to illustrate a jigsaw for the rhyme ‘There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly’. He loved the illustration so much that he decided to turn it into a book, and this classic title was born. Over the past forty years, the Old Lady has remained a best seller. Those who read it as a child subsequently bought it for their children and will be sure to buy it for their grandchildren. During this time the book has been published in board book and big book formats, as well as the original soft and hard cover, and has been recorded on audio CD. A collaboration between Child's Play and Storysack Ltd saw the book developed into a Storysack. In 2006, Pam Adams illustrated a prequel to the book - ‘There was an Old Lady who Swallowed the Sea’. Sadly this was the last title that Pam worked on for Child’s Play as she passed away in 2010 at the age of 91.
