If you know the story of the Jumblies, that happy-go-lucky clan of sailors in a sieve, then you'll be eager to learn more of their saga in this charming love storypoem, penned by the master of nonsense verse, Edward Lear (English, 18121888), and illustrated by the master of brilliant, offbeat images, Edward Gorey (American, 19252000).

As it turns out, the Jumblies made at least one stop during their long journey, and there, on the Hills of the Chankly Bore, a passionate relationship was bornbetween a Jumbly girl and the Dong. The end of the story is sad but sweet, and it stars a nose that can light up a forest, light up the sky! The Dong is some kind of hero, certainly, and he can't help but win our hearts with that protuberant proboscis of his.
