Publisher's Summary

The whimsy, fantasy, and absurd humor in Lear's limericks, poems, songs, and stories are ageless in their appeal to young and old alike. Lewis Carroll's "Phantasmagoria", a not-too-terribly-frightening ghost story, adds to the fun. Also included are the following poems by Carroll: "Echoes", "A Sea Dirge", "Ye Carpette Knyghte", "Hiawatha's Photographing", "Melancholetta", "A Valentine", "The Three Voices", "Theme with Variations", "A Game of Fives", "Poeta Fit, Non Nascitur", "Sighs and Tears", "Atlanta in Camden-Town", "The Long Coortin' ", "Four Riddles", and "Fame's Penny-Trumpet".

Thoroughly entertaining

Perfectly narrated by Flo Gibson. Cleverly written pieces of work by both authors. Phantasmagoria, in particular, brought back some childhood memories of the time when this book was introduced to me by my father.
