    "Brilliant rhythms"

    I only knew a couple of rhythms so thought I'd have a listen, I found them really lovely nonsense, but then again! I'm really pleased with my purchase.

    This book of Nonsense Rhymes is perfectly matched with Alan Bennett's reading.

    Story
    "Boring"

    The narration was very dull and followed a repetitive rhyme.
    I could hardly follow any of the stories included.

    Story
    "A wonderful anthology."
    Any additional comments?

    As an adult, I wasn't sure whether I would still enjoy Lear, but it was a freebie so I had nothing to lose. It certainly didn't disappoint and has been listened to multiple times as I rekindle memories of the well loved verse of my childhood. My boomerang sons also enjoyed listening with me and one has since bought the book. Overall suitable for all ages.
