The Lovereading4Kids comment
The best-loved nonsense rhymes of Edward Lear including The Jumblies and The Dong with the Luminous Nose are beautifully presented in this handsome edition. Each of the nine rhymes is lavishly illustrated by the award-winning Australian illustrator. There is additional information about Edward Lear as well as recipe for Bong-fruit chutney to finish off!
The Owl and the Pussycat and Other Nonsense by Edward Lear
“They dined on mince, and slices of quince, which they ate with a runcible spoon; And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, They danced by the light of the moon.”
Jump aboard the pea-green boat and enter the enchanting world of Edward Lear. This beautiful collection of Lear's best-loved nonsense verse is published to coincide with the Bicentenary of his birth in May 2012. Rediscover the Owl and the Pussycat, The Jumblies, and The Dong with a Luminous Nose. Learn what happened to The New Vestments of the old man from the kingdom of Tess and take a stroll through Bong Tree Land.
A unique gift for adults and children to enjoy for centuries to come.
