Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140382135, Paperback)"In a village near the highest part of England lived a boy made of raspberry jelly..". And so begins one of the many deliciously nonsensical stories selected and illustrated by Quentin Blake. Nonsense lovers of all ages will relish this riot of absurd tales. Many of the nonsense greats, such as Lewis Carroll, James Thurber, and Edward Lear, are featured, plus some wonderful surprises, including pieces by Jane Austen, Noel Coward, and Evelyn Waugh. From Roald Dahl's "Violet and the Chewing Gum" to Carl Sandburg's "How Gimme the Ax Found Out about the Zigzag Railroad and Who Made It Zigzag", these are gems of incomparable silliness.
