There Was An Old Man
A Collection of LimericksBook - 1994
Edward Lear, by profession a landscape painter and by choice an entertainer of children, ushered in the great age of nonsense with Book of Nonsense (1846). A master of his craft, Lear wrote hundreds of limericks that tickled everyone's funnybone. Quebec artist Michele Lemieux brings Lear's imaginary countries and absurd people to life in this collection of 51 of his most outrageous and playful nonsense poems. Lemieux passes on Lear's voice to a new generation of children.
