Quentin Blake's anthology of nonsense verse contains many familiar classics (e.g. Carroll's "Jabberwocky") alongside many that will become instant favorites. Original drawings by the editor only sweeten the deal.
Thoroughly entertaining book with wonderfully enjoyaboe nonsense poems for children and adults.
I read it 'cause it seemed a scream,But cauliflowers inflect my dream.It's hard to say if good or bad,A kangaroo would make me sad.
notable - ogden nash, -the purist-. Laura Richards, -eletelephony-Roger Mcgough, -gazebos-lord Alfred Douglas, -the duck-Part-read, in a non-linear fashion.
A real 'whale' of a tale.
Great book to read in bed or on the can. Lots of short funny poems, some better than others, of course, but generally good. Arrangement by topic is a bonus.
Absolutely wonderful anthology. I have been reading and re-reading again and again and also read out some verses from here at a summer workshop for children.
Read it as a child, still enjoy it now:)
