9781402772948: Poetry for Young People: Edward Lear

Utterly delightful to read aloud, and for parent and child to share, Edward Lear's humorous verses shine with irrepressible joy and rhythm. Filled with exuberantly nonsensical made-up words (like "Scroobius Pip" and "pobble"!) that tickle the funny bone, his work gives free rein to youthful imaginations. What better way to foster a love of poetry than the immediately appealing The Owl and the Pussy-Cat, with its effortless rhymes, song-like beat, and charming animal characters? Or The Quangle Wangle's Hat, which tells the tale of a creature who warmly welcomes everyone--and so makes everyone cheerful. This handsome volume of Edward Lear poems is now available in paperback – at a great price and with a bold new cover design – to bring the love of classic poetry to a broad new audience.

About the Author:

Academic editor Edward Mendelson is the Lionel Trilling Professor in the Humanities at Columbia, and has taught at Harvard and Yale. He has numerous books and articles to his credit; has won such prestigious grants as the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship; and is Literary Executor of the estate of poet W.H. Auden.

Illustrator Laura Huliska-Beith grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute. She currently lives in Kansas City.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-5. In an analytical introduction, Mendelson looks at Lear's serious and silly sides before selecting 15 limericks and 18 longer poems, all of which feature odd creatures adapting to, or reveling in, their differences. Sporting conical noses or other physical peculiarities, Huliska-Beit's smiling, rubber-limbed figures dance through vertiginously tilted, brightly colored minimalist settings. Though some notes are provided, the awkward gap in "Scroobious Pip" is not explained (Lear left it unfinished), and the small type size gives some pages a jam-packed look. Still, as a presentation of Lear's better-known poems, this makes a thought- and laugh-provoking bridge between the many picture-book editions of single poems and such extended collections as The Nonsense Poems of Edward Lear (1991).
