First published in 1845, this freewheeling collection of wacky limericks and whimsical ink drawings by Edward Lear stands alone in classic children’s literature. Includes hundreds of wacky limericks, like: “There was an Old Man with a beard, who said, ‘It is just as I feared! Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren, Have all built their nests in my beard!” Fun for children of all ages. By Edward Lear. (Thanks Grant, for recommending this one. You are right, it’s really cool…) Hardbound, 8.3"×6.5", 288 pp., b/w illus.
