Read full description of the books The Jumblies:'The Jumblies’ by Edward Lear
Illustrated by Sam McPhillips
This is a beautifully illustrated picture book, featuring the classic nonsense poem by Edward Lear; a truly rhythmical read.
‘They went to sea in a Sieve, they did,
In a Sieve they went to sea:
In spite of all their friends could say,
On a winter's morn, on a stormy day,
In a Sieve they went to sea! . . .’
What a wonderful way to introduce children to the world of classic literature and the nonsense poem of Edward Lear. This is a poem to share with children of all ages. It has beautiful bright images to capture their attention especially showing the little Jumblies.
‘. . .Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a Sieve.’
This book along with several others is retailed at £5.99 but I found this for 99p in the Aldi Supermarket (UK); fantastic bargain.
I have today been informed that my sister’s grandson (whom I bought the book for) loves it.
