This hardback edition contains twenty-six limericks, each with a bold and detailed illustration by Allan Stomann. Some of the limericks have a publisher's note which often adds to the humour. See an example of this below These limericks were collected by David G. Harris (who sadly, does not come from Paris.) There is a contents page at the beginning which is useful when trying to quickly locate the limerick you want. This compilation was first published in Australia by Angus & Robertson in 1985. It is a welcome edition to my classroom poetry selection.
