Once in a Blue Moon by Nicola Morgan

Once in a Blue Moon, written and illustrated by Nicola Morgan, is an amusing story of an old lady who celebrates her birthday with some good friends.  What makes the story amusing and interesting is that the story is told using so many familiar, and sometimes silly, sayings.  It starts describing Aunt Floydie as being "old as the hills" and "fit as a fiddle" .

Anna got a kick out of the pictures, especially the one of the mayor with his foot in his mouth, while I was quite amused by the text.
