Are the lands where the Jumblies live; Their heads are green, and their hands are blue

Are the lands where the Jumblies live; Their heads are green, and their hands are blue, And they went to sea in a Sieve. II. They sailed away in a Sieve, they did, In a Sieve they sailed so fast, With only a beautiful pea-green veil.

A vibrant, fantastical picture storybook, detailing The Jumblies and their ocean adventure in a sieve - join the intrepid blue and green adventurers as they set sail! A classic nonsense tale by Edward Lear.

It's found in spades here in both 'The Jumblies' and 'The Dong with a Luminous Nose'.

Edward Lear (English, 1812-1888) was a highly respected painter by trade, but today he is perhaps best known for his nonsense poems. It's found in spades here in both 'The Jumblies' and 'The Dong with a Luminous Nose'. Gorey's inspired interpretation of 'The Jumblies' does something to Lear's original - it releases the story from words, engaging as they are. Gorey gives us readers the hi-ho-the-merry-o amidst the wind and the waves, the clanking of bottles and tiny cheers of celebration.

I love Edward Corey's little books! This book is a poem by Edward Lear and Edward Gorey's illustrations really captured the verses. Wonderful book!

Cute book.

This is a much beloved story by Edward Lear. It's poetic cadence is fun to read.

I was happy to find this version, as it was the one I read to my children when they were younger. I am in the midst of collecting their favorites for my grandchildren.

What a joy to find this!

A trait found in Gorey's more memorable works is the effortless flow between the story and art; a well-choreographed dance of meter and line. It's found in spades here in both 'The Jumblies' and 'The Dong with a Luminous Nose'. Gorey's inspired interpretation of 'The Jumblies' does something to Lear's original - it releases the story from words, engaging as they are. Gorey gives us readers the hi-ho-the-merry-o amidst the wind and the waves, the clanking of bottles and tiny cheers of celebration. And even if the Jumblies aren't beings made entirely in our image, they still provide us the most enjoyable of company.

In 'The Dong with a Luminous Nose', a sequel to 'The Jumblies', sweet pathos is offered alongside humor, and Gorey gives the poor, tortured soul a real stage. Other artists portray the Dong succumbing to a sort of mad foolishness. Gorey finds someone not so mad, but forlorn, more a fool of the heart.

Together, these endearing little characters cast in 'The Jumblies' and 'The Dong with a Luminous Nose' come through with a warmth and fragility that makes these little players appear, oddly, as old, wizened children. They are some of Gorey's most memorable creations. Not surprising really, as Gorey held Lear in very high esteem, and hoped he could do Lear's tales justice.

This is a nonsense story written by Edward Lear, who was a landscape painter in the early 1800's. He taught Queen Victoria how to do watercolor paintings, and in 1847, he published a nonsense rhyme book that became well-loved and quite famous. Lear became more famous for his book than he was for his paintings. This is a nonsense rhyme about a bunch of silly people who go to sea in a sieve and what they do when the water comes in and what they do when they reach some land. What makes this book so fun is the beautiful ink drawings by Edward Gorey. I think that the illustrations make this book a piece of art in itself. They are also quite entertaining.

a little less fanciful than some other Gorey books, but I really love the poem and the Gorey pictures don't hurt. If you are strictly looking for Gorey here, I would definitely pick one of his other books though.
