Author(s): Edward Lear
A delightful picture book for young children, bringing new life to five of Edward Lears best-loved nonsense verses. Zany characters leap across the pages in a colourful fantasy world where nothing is what it seems and anything is possible. It is the ideal way to introduce young children to the work of Edward Lear. The bright, appealing illustrations are more child-friendly than the other more esoteric editions currently available.
