'Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you're at! Up above the world you fly, Like a tea-tray in the sky. Twinkle, twinkle -'. This is a beautifully illustrated edition of Lewis Carroll's nonsense verse: most people are familiar with the verse from Alice through the Looking-Glass, for example The Walrus and the Carpenter , and also other classics such as You are Old , Father William and The Jabberwocky . These are of course all included, alongside some lesser-known poems that are a delight to discover, including The Three Badgers , The Mad Gardener's Song , and The White Knight's Ballad . Fantastically detailed, jewel-like illustrations complement the delights of this most nonsensical verse. The perfect companion to Bisky Bats and Pussy Cats - the Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear .
