Utterly delightful to read aloud, and for parent and child to share, Edward Lear's humorous verses shine with irrepressible joy and rhythm. Filled with exuberantly nonsensical made-up words (like "Scroobius Pip" and "pobble"!) that tickle the funny bone, his work gives free rein to youthful imaginations. What better way to foster a love of poetry than the immediately appealing "The Owl and the Pussy-Cat," with its effortless rhymes, song-like beat, and charming animal characters? Or "The Quangle Wangle's Hat," which tells the tale of a creature who warmly welcomes everyone--and so makes everyone cheerful. This handsome volume of Edward Lear poems is now available in paperback – at a great price and with a bold new cover design – to bring the love of classic poetry to a broad new audience.
