The Jumblies and Other Nonsense Verses

by Edward Lear

Description:  Take a journey into nonsense-land, where the Jumblies sail off in sieve, a pig serves as a parson, and an elderly gentleman's wardrobe can get . . . mighty strange (hint: a coat made of pancakes is involved). Lear's delightfully zany verse, and Leslie Brooke's cheery illustrations are likely to light sizable twinkles in one's eyes. Note (from experience): readers should not be surprised if they find themselves wandering the house murmuring favorite lines under their breath.
