Mervyn Peake's nonsense verse is little-known, overshadowed by Titus Groan and Gormenghast. Much of it is delightful: 'The trouble with geraniums/ is that they're much too red!/ The trouble with my toast is that/ it's far too full of bread...' It's an entirely individual voice - the illustrations, too - though well in the tradition of Lear. A good stocking-filler. (Kirkus UK)
