Format: Paperback
This was the version we had when I was a toddler. I was thrilled to find it for my children who love it just as much. But it is now out of print again! None of the other illustrated versions of Lear's poem do it justice. Buy it second hand and write to the publishers to bring it out again!

Format: Paperback
A classic of children's literature. Lear's brilliantly imaginative writing style coupled with Oxenbury's luscious (and award-winning) artwork conspire to produce a magical landscape populated by the sort of bizarre creatures (including the Attery Squash and the Dong with the Luminous Nose) that happily inhabit a child's dreams.
This is one of those rare books that is fondly recalled well into adulthood....

This reprint of the early version has the wonderful illustrations by Helen Oxenbury. I have the original but this is put away, and it's wonderful to get this reprint (AND LARGER than the original) so my Grandchildren can enjoy the fantasy of Edward Lear that my children shared.

Format: Paperback
The Quangle Wangle's Hat was read to me when I was a child and I have never forgotten such creatures as the Dong with the Luminous Nose, or the Attery Squash, or the Fimble Fowl with a Corkscrew Leg. How could I? I bought this in 1991 for my daughter, then aged three. It has remained one of her firm favourites since.
A good book, well ilustrated, is key to engaging a childs imagination and encouraging them to read for themselves. Quangle Wangle is exactly that - a good book, and well illustrated. Kids up to about 10 years of age should enjoy this, and secretly their big bothers and sisters will remain fond into adulthood.
Every child should have a copy.

I have used this book with my class of primary children for several years but it went walkabout! I am so pleased to have been able to replace it with such a good quality copy - although others are available, none come up to the fabulous Helen Oxenbury version with its wonderful illustrations, allowing my children's creativity to run wild. The book arrived very quickly and although it was "used", the condition was totally acceptable. It will delight my class for many years to come!

The Quangle Wangle's Hat is a story that enchants not only the children listening, but the adult that reads it to them.
