Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you're at! Up above the world you fly, Like a tea-tray in the sky. Twinkle, twinkle. This is a beautifully illustrated edition of Lewis Carroll's nonsense verse: most people are familiar with the verse from "Alice through the Looking-Glass", for example "The Walrus and the Carpenter", and also other classics such as "You are Old", "Father William" and "The Jabberwocky." These are of course all included, alongside some lesser-known poems that are a delight to discover, including "The Three Badgers", "The Mad Gardener's Song", and "The White Knight's Ballad". Fantastically detailed, jewel-like illustrations complement the delights of this most nonsensical verse. The perfect companion to "Bisky Bats and Pussy Cats" - the "Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear". "Hussey's exquisitely detailed illustrations heighten the sense of absurdity and make Carroll's nonsense real. This is a wonderful collection which will delight children of all ages." - "Good Book Guide".
