Ian Beck manages to breathe fresh life into this favourite poem with his illustrations. As a primary teacher I have discovered it fires the imagination of young children, we have made passports, suitcases, honey sandwiches, pea green boats. We've written letters for bottles, postcards and wobbly poems that look like waves. I could go on and on! Needless to say each time it is read it is thoroughly enjoyed and something new discovered.Now just what is a bong tree...........

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic illustrations for a classic tale 3 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Ian Beck's illustrations make this a delightful book. It's great to be able to share a poem that meant so much to me as a child with my own children. The way the words fit the pictures, the brilliant "year and a day" page, all contribute to a wonderful book for any child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old favourite with superb illustrations 19 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This Edward Lear classic was one of my faourite poems as a child, and I bought this edition to read to my grandchildren. It is an excellent introduction to poetry with a simple but exotic tale, enriched with absolutely splendid illustrations by Ian Beck. The "year and a day" double-page spread is very imaginative - and incidentally instructive. I enjoyed reading it to my six-year old grand-daughter: she enjoyed both the story and the pictures. I think she will soon be reading it to her younger brother.
