A Selection of Nonsense Verse - Edward Lear

A Selection of Nonsense Verse by Edward Lear is a collection of nonsense poems and limericks featuring some of the nation's favourite 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 for children aged 5 and up. Known as the father of the nonsense poem, Edward Lear paved the way for the likes of Lewis Carol's Alice and Wonderland, Dr Zeus and Roger McGough and 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
