About the Author

Edward Lear (1812–1888) was an illustrator, natural history artist, and writer, though he is best known for his nonsense poems. His collection of poetry, A BOOK OF NONSENSE, was published in 1846 and helped to popularize the limerick, a humorous form of verse. His most famous poem, THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT, has been made into many picture books.
