Summary
Jump aboard the pea-green boat and enter the enchanting world of Edward Lear. This collection of Lear's best-loved nonsense verse is published to coincide with the Bicentenary of his birth in May 2012. Rediscover the Owl and the Pussycat, The Jumblies, and The Dong with a Luminous Nose. Learn what happened to The New Vestments of the old man from the Kingdom of Tess and take a stroll through Bong Tree Land. Lear's verse and limericks have enthralled generations of families, but it is as an ornithological illustrator that he first made his name. His poems, and the original artworks that accompany them, form the heart of this beautiful book, but Lear?s sketches and drawings of birds, as well as a brief glimpse into the life of the man who declared: 'Nonsense is the breath of my nostrils' complete the tribute to an extraordinary and enduring talent
