View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Sukumar Ray is undoubtedly the finest writer of nonsense tales and verses in Bengali. This is the first attempt at presenting his chief works - Rhymes without Reason (Abol-Tabol), a collection of nonsense poems and other comic verse, and A Topsy-Turvy Tale (Ha-Ja-Ba-Ra-La), a dream fantasy - in a single volume in English. It contains 44 of the 52 pieces in Rhymes without Reason and practically the full text of A Topsy-Turvy Tale, and reproduces Ray's original illustrations. These skilful translations succeed in conveying the special air of genial intimacy of Ray's creations imparted by the remarkable mingling of the familiar and the fantastic.
