'Nonsense is the breath of my nostrils', wrote Edward Lear (1812-88)

The perfect gift for both Lear fans and those discovering his work for the first time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The reissue of this beautiful book is a bicentennial tribute to Edward Lear. All the best known verses, such as "The Owl and the Pussy Cat", "The Jumblies" and "The Dong with the Luminous Nose", are included, but there are also less familiar but equally captivating poems as well as hundreds of pithy limericks. The result is a fantasy feast, the absurdity of which John Vernon Lord captures perfectly in his detailed and literate illustrations -- Julia Eccleshare * The Guardian *
