Description: Some of these poems come from the frabjous troves of Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear and Hilaire Belloc. Others have been surprised in lucky corners, as Quentin Blake searched for them in second-hand bookshops in New Orleans or 'among the stray dispirited volumes loitering on the shelves of spare bedrooms: anywhere that nonsense might lurk.' Classics such as 'Jabberwocky' and 'The Jumblies' rub shoulders with 'Belagcholly Days' (which sounds better read with a cold) and a song from Groucho Marx, making it a delight for readers from nine to ninety. Quentin Blake's witty illustrations draw out the fun, absurdity and glorious illogic of verse from Ogden Nash, Beckett, Updike, Spike Milligan, Roger McGough, John Yeoman, Roald Dahl and a host of other poets.
