A beautifully illustrated edition of Lewis Carroll's nonsense verse: most people are familiar with the verse from Alice through the Looking-Glass, for example The Walrus and the Carpenter, and also other classics such as You are Old, Father William and The Jabberwocky. These are of course all included, alongside some lesser-known poems that are a delight to discover, including The Three Badgers, The Mad Gardener's Song, and The White Knight's Ballad. Fantastically detailed, jewel-like illustrations complement the delights of this most nonsensical verse. The perfect companion to Bisky Bats and Pussy Cats - the Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear.
