Press Reviews

Best-loved nonsense songs such as The Owl and the Pussy-Cat, The Jumblies, The Dong with the Luminous Nose and many more are included in this highly attractive volume... A good selection of Edward Lear’s Limericks, also richly illustrated, are included too making the whole book a wonderful introduction to classic works.

Packed with colourful illustrations.
Newbury Weekly News
I love the way Usborne present these books, with a soft padded cover and superb illustrations - they are ideal presents and books to treasure. The old favourites are all here and there are also many less familiar pieces to delight the audience. The illustrations by Christine Pym are superb - they are full of fun and humour and a key part of this lovely book as they are integrated perfectly with the text.
Parents in Touch
A beautifully illustrated and packed edition which would make a lovely gift.
Made for Mums
Nonsense alphabets, limerics and quirky botanical imaginings are gathered together with famous poems in the stunningly and imaginatively illustrated Usborne Illustrated Originals Edward Lear’s Book of Nonsense. Christine Pym’s illustrations are bright and whimsical and they accompany the text brilliantly.
