The Lovereading4Kids comment
A lively collection of Edward Lear’s most popular Limericks and Nonsense Songs presented as they appeared originally with illustrations by the author. In full colour and very much of their time, the vigorous illustrations give a wonderful period feel to the Limericks. The illustrations to the Nonsense Songs which begin with The Owl and the Pussy-Cat, the most famous of them all, are in black and white and therefore appear more restrained but closer looking shows them to be just as witty - The Dong’s Luminous Nose is especially wittily captured.
A Selection of Nonsense Verse by Edward Lear
"Nonsense is the breath of my nostrils" ~ Edward Lear
Known as the father of the nonsense poem, Edward Lear is much to thank for the form's popularity. Gently mocking the ridiculousness of human behaviour and Victorian convention, Lear's deliciously silly verse has delighted children and adults for generations. This complete collection features some of the nation's favorite classics, including The Owl and the Pussy Cat, The Quangle-Wangle's Hat and The Jumblies. Perfectly complimented by Lear's own illustrations, this is the perfect gift edition.
