5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be scared off by word "children's" 4 April 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Even though this is part of the Dover Children's Thrift Classics series, this volume of poetry can be equally enjoyable for older folks. Hey, even a college student like me can enjoy verses like, "There was an Old Man of Three Bridges,/Whose mind was distracted by midges;/He sate on a wheel, eating underdone veal,/Which relieved that Old Man of Three Bridges." The illustrations accompanying each poem add to the bright, innocent humor that Lear excelled at writing.
5.0 out of 5 stars Oh joy 29 Mar 2013
By J. Irvine - Published on
I agree that this book is for all ages. It is wonderful to enjoy with a child because the vocabulary and grammar levels are quite sophisticated at times amidst the pure nonsense.
