Top of the Shelf: His Shoes Were Far Too Tight

His Shoes  Were Far Too Tight by Edward Lear, Masterminded by Daniel Pinkwater, Illustrated by Calef Brown (Chronicle Books) Following a brief introduction of Edward Lear, Pinkwater presents a selection of Lear's nonsense rhymes to share with young readers. Well known poems such as "The Jumblies" and "The Owl and the Pussycat" are included as well as a number of less familiar rhymes. Brown's quirky, colorful illustrations sprawl across the pages, adding just the right touch to this oversize collection. Pick up a copy of His Shoes Were Far Too Tight and click here to read more of our Top of the Shelf recommendations!
