Delightful collection of 60 limericks includes famous rhymes by such masters of the form as Gelett Burgess, Oliver Herford, and Edward Lear, as well as lesser-known works by these and other humorists, including the editor himself. Fun to read, easy to memorize and great to share with family and friends, each entertaining snippet of verse is accompanied by an equally humorous illustration.
