Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 2/13/2014

    " This is the most amazing book! I've had it memorized for years because it's just that kind of story! You'll want to read it so many times that you too will have it memorized. Yes, it's written for little children, but the truly great books in life we never outgrow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianna | 12/8/2013

    " I memorized this poem as a child and have never forgotten it. Jan Brett's wonderful illustrations make this book well worth a look. It's fun to see her illustrating in a tropical setting for a change. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leila T. | 11/14/2013

    " I love this kind of illustration, the poem is classically nonsensical, and I thought that 'the land where the bong-tree grows' looked pleasingly like Australia. So this was a hit (for both of us). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 10/19/2013

    " This is one of my favorites because my grandmother gave me a book which included this delightful tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobby | 10/13/2013

    " The greatest nonsense verse behind Carroll's Jabberwocky, made even more ludicrous with pictures detailing the ironies contained therein. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Shaw | 9/5/2013

    " This book tells the humorous love story of an owl and pussycat. At the beginning, readers think they are just friends, but by the end of the book you realize their romance. It is light-hearted and funny and will get some laughs from students. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thom Dunn | 7/30/2013

    " I recall the first time I saw a runcible spoon and nearly fainted with nostalgia, remembering my mother's reading of this to me from MY BOOK HOUSE. Thanks again, Mom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gretchen Geser | 7/12/2013

    " Marshall's illustrations showed me Lear's words: the wonder, the absurdity, and especially the humor "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heath | 4/18/2013

    " Edward Lear's story -- and Jan Brett's illustrations -- make this board book sing. There are multiple layers of images, and the fish and seahorse pull the readers through the thick pages. One of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 3/15/2013

    " C really likes pointing at things in the pictures. He also loves to say "owl" and "maow." I'm going back and forth between 3 and 4 stars - C loves to look at the book, isn't as patient about letting me actually read it to him. (23 months old). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Imelda | 1/3/2013

    " I love this poem. What I love even more in this particular book, are the illustrations. I've read this to both of my children, over and over and over. An all time classic and just gorgeous pictures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucinda | 11/4/2011

    " My copy of this book was in French, a gift to me when I was a very young girl. Even after translation it was hard to make sense of it as a child. I totally loved the sounds of the words and the improbability of it all. I still do. I reminds me of a recent trip to Hawaii. "
