How friendly to grasp Mr. Lear!
Who has written such volumes of stuff.
Some imagine him ill-tempered and queer,
yet a couple of imagine him friendly enough.

So wrote Edward Lear upon the 1st book of those Nonsense Songs in 1871, and few poets certainly have captured the mind's eye of kids as he has. His playful use of language, his occasion of the absurd, his love of natural nonsense have secured his position at the cabinets of formative years libraries for generations.

This re-creation of his Nonsense Songs has the entire favorites--the romantic "Owl and the Pussy-Cat" and the foolish "Jumblics"--as good as many different rhymes which may be new to younger readers--"The Pelican refrain" and the hilarious "New Vestments."

Newly commissioned illustrations by way of Jonathan Allen and an advent through Naomi Lewis make this the variation of selection for a brand new new release of readers.

His Waistcoat and Trousers have been made up of red meat Chops;--
His Buttons have been Jujubes, and Chocolate Drops;--
Hi Coat was once all Pancakes with Jam for a Border,
And a girdle of Biscuits to maintain it in order.
