The Finest Nonsense of Edward Lear

The Finest Nonsense of Edward Lear Review

Nearly 150 years since his poetry was first published, Lear’s nonsense rhymes are still popular today. In this lively and colorful audiobook recording, Derek Jacobi reads Lear’s most famous poems and most fantastic creations, including The Owl and the Pussy-Cat, The Daddy Long-Legs and the Fly, The Jumblies, The Dong with the Luminous Nose and a collection of assorted limericks. Lear’s poems gave the clear message that it’s interesting, funny and okay to be different, and that message is just as relevant now as it was in Lear’s own day.

Giant Children

Giant Children Review

Goblins. Boogers. Stinky boys. These are the things of childhood, and they’re all here in this outrageous collection of poems that look at the world through a child’s eyes. Featuring everything from the Giant Children of the title-who flip pages with amazing speed-to a turtle named Jaws, the poetry included here is rambunctious, irreverent, funny, and sometimes even gross. Tedd Arnold, creator of the beloved Parts and More Parts, and Brod Bagert are good friends who have happily teamed up-with hilarious results.
