PUBLISHERS' PREFACE.

The almost general desire to have The Owl and The Pussy-cat, The Duck and The Kangaroo, in a distinct form from Mr. Lear's other Nonsense Drolleries, has induced us to issue them separately with Original Illustrations.

60+ years of memories

Still remember the words, still wonderful, when I was little, the Owl and the Pussycat was real to me, as it should have been.

Nursery Rhymes

Two very cute and short nursery rhymes / poems that made me reminisce of my childhood imagination and simpler times

Fun poems. I may one day have the whole of "The Owl and The Pussycat" memorised

Most excellent indeed.

Good.

Just two poems, perfect for what i wanted. I only wanted to read the owl and pussycat as my other half was aghast when I said I had not done so. I do like nonsense rhyme and am surprised I have not come across Lear before. I will be looking for a more comprehensive collection.

Beautiful drawings for both nonsense drolleries. I'm amazed that I could still recite most of the Owl & the Pussycat after all these years. Couldn't even remember the Duck & the Kangaroo poem from my childhood, but maybe as a child I could relate to the Owl and Pussycat more. After all, I...more

Delicious !
Love the duck's socks !!!!! :-)

Dazzling and enchanted in its nonsense. Brilliant as Lewis Carroll's poems about The Walrus and The Carpenter, Father William and my favorite Jabberwocky.

Quaint.

What a bunch of nonsense.
