Description:

Hardcover with dust jacket, both in fine condition. Inscribed by author: "To Jamie-A LA-DI-DA KID!". Come visit the Island of Oh, the home of the La-Di-Da Hare In the spirit of Edward Lear, J. Patrick Lewis weaves a beguiling original rhyme about the Commodore Mouse and the Honeypot Bear who set sail to the Island of Oh where they visit the inimitable La-Di-Da Hare. There they don beachcomber clothes and are treated to dell sandwiches before being invited by Her Ladyship to stay on forever in this idyllic, almost believable world. Master poet J. Patrick Lewis has created a charming non-sense verse brought to life splendidly by Diana Cain Bluthenthal's whimsical artwork. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: In a zany nonsense poem, Commodore Mouse and the Honeypot Bear embark on a voyage to the Island of Oh to visit the La-Di-Da Hare and enjoy a sojourn in the idyllic, fun-filled world.

From Kirkus Reviews: Clever wordplay and a marvelous island bestiary distinguish this rhymed wonder quest from Lewis (Black Swan/White Crow, 1995, etc.). Mouse suggests to Honeypot Bear that they set sail for the magical Island of Oh, ``to hear the applause of the Red Lobster claws/For the beautiful La-di-da Hare.'' Honeypot Bear obliges by becoming their boat, Mouse navigates (``Honey! Bear right!'') and takes the honorary title of Commodore, and when they reach Oh, La-di-da Hare welcomes them lavishly: She decks them out in Bermuda shorts, Hawaiian shirts, and cool designer shades, then rustles up some deli sandwiches for the whole island crowd. The Crocodile accepts a pastrami on rye, Oyster and Blue-clawed Crab tuck into deviled eggs and dill pickles, ``And who prefers a pat of peanut/Butter on a bun?/The Owls sat think-blinking that/Might do. `Yoo-whoo!' said one.'' La-di-da Hare convinces the two to remain forever, ``For animal crackers,/And wheels of bleu cheese- -/And a bungalow, boys,/For as long as you please!'' They are persuaded, and remain there to this day. It's a good subversive touch--let's have none of that home-in-time-for-tea stuff. Bluthenthal's animated illustrations are an excellent complement, in beachcombing colors of sand and surf, convincing in the depiction of a place awash in fresh, salt breezes.
