His Shoes Were Far Too Tight: Poems by Edward Lear

His Shoes Were Far Too Tight: Poems by Edward Lear
by Daniel Pinkwater (Editor) and Calef Brown (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Edward Lear’s first nonsense poems were publshied in 1846…and have been loved ever since!

Snippet:
Nonsense Alphabet
A was an ape,
Who stole some white tape,
And tied up his toes
In four beautiful bows.
A!
Funny old ape!

  1. Sometimes these nonsense poems can open a window for those who think they don’t like poetry. Wonderful to think we’re still enjoying Lear after so many years. A nice thing!
