Details: Simon Drew combines a collection of elegant drawings of birds and beasts with piquant rhymes. A latterday Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, Simon Drew creates amusement from the absurdity of playing around with words. Gifted with a fine sense of fun and a rich imagination, he interprets quite literally, in pictures, prose and verse, conventional words and phrases, situations and circumstances. The result is a delightful and sensitive collection, totally unexpected and highly amusing, touched in parts with a slight melancholy - for the wold is not all laughs (as Lewis Carroll's Walrus and Carpenter would well appreciate). With its verbal and pictorial puns this book both amuses and streches our imagination. Simone Drew in no way sells his anthropomorphic characters short: the wily gannet, the sad dog, the puffins in an onion patch, the bull in his cage are seen through the eyes of a gentle and understanding observer.
