" Really there are lots of nonsense in this book but, its so funny with lovely drawings . I like it . " said.

" Utter nonsense (that's a compliment!) and I didn't find it funny at all. " said.

" The title of this book says it all, it consists solely of complete nonsense. Nevertheless, it is fun. The poetry and illustrations are amusing and so are the songs. This book is something fun to pick up every once in a while. " said.

"Everyone's familiar with 'The Owl and the Pussycat' from their childhood and this lovely collection of Edward Lear poems will transport you right back to your younger days. This is a wonderfully nonsensical book that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

I read this book as one of my set texts for next year of uni and finished it in only a couple of days. It's really short with lovely little illustrations to accompany the text and I found it was great as a light reliever from revision stress. This is by no means a criticism but I was amazed at how many of the poems resulted in death; it was never something I'd noticed as a child. And yet, reading through his limericks there was poem after poem of people getting killed or murdered. Somehow the sing-song rhymes made their deaths just that little bit more sinister.
A lot of the poems were very familiar to me and it was nice re-reading old favourites. As a child I had a CD of Spike Milligan reading nonsense rhymes and quite a few of the poems in this collection were read out on the CD. I really enjoyed re-reading childhood favourites and would definitely recommend this book to anyone with a small child or anyone who just wants a trip down memory lane.

" The poems are funny and it's a good way to make children interested in poetry and learn about rhymed words. The illustrations are not original from Edward Lear but they match well. " said.

" Nonsense is right. Pretty weird. " said.

I'm a huge fan of literary nonsense and absurd in poetry and prose so it was obvious that I will love Edward Lear too, and especially his limericks, a form he popularised. This volume, illustrated by the author contains his most popular poems and songs.

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!'
