An absolutely wonderful and funny book for all human beings be they adult or child. Put this book on your list to keep on hand to read to any children in your life. Children have fabulous senses of humor. Edward Lear is just as smart and funny today as he was in the mid 19th century when he lived, wrote, and illustrated. No home should be without this book.Avis Black
Lear's best poems are good; the problem is that there are so few of them among all the work he produced.Elliott
Absolutely must be read aloud - and preferably with other people!Steve Shilstone
Among Mr. Lear's characters, I really do most sincerely appreciate Violet, Lionel, Guy, and Slingsby.Bruce
Overall pretty good. I have to say though that the standards for what makes a good limerick have come a long way since Lear's time.Kristy
Love these nonsensical texts!Bobby Morris
I've been a huge fan of Edward Lear's nonsense ever since I was a boy.Sekaie
The book is full of fascinating nonsense.Sarah

This was fun to skim throughS.
Lear could draw, too. And he knew how to have fun. What is not to love?Brandon White
A bit repetitive at times, and definitely not, by todays standards at least, entirely "child friendly". Regardless, I enjoyed it for what it was... nonsense.Adam Weber
So much fun for anyone of any age.Rubi
Sin sentido???Pues para mí sí que tiene, y mucho!!hay que encontrarle el sentido al sin sentido...Creo que es libro más original que me he leído nunca, mezclando poesía, narrativa, dibujos, abecedarios, canciones, recetas de cocina....increíble!!Leeré más de Edward Lear; dejaré que me sorprenda aún más!aljouharah altheeyb
مثل ماقلت من قبل، أدب التفاهة حاجة غريبه وجميلة وممتعة! أفكار كثيره عجيبه تُخلط وتتحرك وتخرج بسلاسة وكأنها تحدث كُل يوم. شخصيات لا تفكر بإمكانية تحويلها لأبطال قصص تجدها ترقص وتسافر في مغامرات طويله لا معنى لها. حبيت إدورد لير من هالكتاب. حس الفكاهة عنده جداً عالي ومميز.
