More About Edward Lear & Vivien Noakes

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! With over thirty four million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation's foremost author illustrators of children's books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.

As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."

As a student at the Boston Museum School, she spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts. "It was overwhelming to see the room-size landscapes and towering stone sculptures, and then moments later to refocus on delicately embroidered kimonos and ancient porcelain," she says. "I'm delighted and surprised when fragments of these beautiful images come back to me in my painting."

Travel is also a constant inspiration. Together with her husband, Joe Hearne, who is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jan visits many different countries where she researches the architecture and costumes that appear in her work. "From cave paintings to Norwegian sleighs, to Japanese gardens, I study the traditions of the many countries I visit and use them as a starting point for my children's books."

Edward Lear was born in 1812 and died in 1888.

Edward Lear: The complete Verse and Other Nonsense  Jan 15, 2008
This edition of old favorites was as big a hit with my granddaughter as it was with my own children. The rhymes just beg to be read aloud, and this edition is easy to follow. A treat for the whole family
Excellent compilation--a trip down memory lane!  Jul 29, 2006
A great book to reconnect with Lear's verse, and to read some that may be unfamiliar. A good shared-read with children, enhancing their awareness of humor in language and stimulating their own creativity. An all-around good purchase.
Edward Lear, Poet of the Absurd!!  Mar 18, 2003
Edward Lear IS the poet of the absurd. With his wiity observations and witticisms, he opened many a mind to the unexplored territory of the verbal nicety. Mr. lear was not merely a gifted poet, but also a great humorist. I give him credit for his creative ingenuity as well as his humor. He has made me laugh from the age of three!! :)

I welcome any review fo the man's work, but this one is absolutely definitive. Pick it up for the mastery of the form, for the humor of the verse, and ultimately, for the sheer delight of the words.

The man, simply put, was (and remains) a genius. Buy it. Read it. Enjoy it. You owe this to yourself.
