KIRKUS REVIEW

The casual nonsense of Lear's limericks has been well served by the illustrator's deceptively casual looking blobs of color to represent the nonsense people and animals, with overlays of stamping and some features drawn in. The limericks have been reduced to their original four line form and one to a page with these measurements leaves an unconscionable amount of white space around the text. The facing illustrations are big, in full color and interesting in conception and execution.
