Poetry for Young People: Edward Learby Edward Mendelson (Editor), Laura Huliska-Beith (Illustrator)
“Huliska-Beith’s smiling, rubber-limbed figures dance through vertiginously tilted, brightly colored minimalist settings… As a presentation of Lear’s better-known poems, this makes a thought—and laugh—provoking bridge.” –Booklist
