A Book of Nonsense
Psychology Press, 2002 - 224 síður
From the benighted Old Man with a Beard to the erudite Perpendicular Purple Polly, Edward Lear's world is inhabited by a bewildering variety of oddities. Pelicans and parrots, seals and rhinoceroses cavort gaily with Dongs and Pobbles, not to mention the Quangle-Wangles! Edward Lear is one of the world's most-loved writers, and his verse has delighted whole generations of readers. Here, after 140 years, is the original edition of A Book of Nonsense, from the original publishers. It is both an object to be treasured and a feast of playfulness that will delight every reader. Complete with Lear's own remarkable illustrations, by turns surreal, hilarious and simply nonsensical, this treasure trove of nonsense is guaranteed to hold readers spellbound for generations more!
