Dance with a lobster, telephone an elephant, or knock on a moonlit door - this collection includes magical, macabre, dramatic, funny, bizarre, absurd, delightful, moving, and charming poems by Lewis Carroll, A.A. Milne, Edward Lear, Hilaire Belloc, Kenneth Grahame, and many others. Readers such as Anton Lesser, Simon Russell-Beale, and Timothy West bring the lines beautifully to life and make this an ideal introduction to some of the best-loved children's poetry.

When you are young you hear poems without understanding half the vocabulary. It is quite funny and pleasant to listen again as an adult.
Narration - varies, and some (especially the rather exaggerated cockneys) were not to my taste.
