Anthony Madrid
There Was an Old Man with a Springbok
A children’s book for grownups, composed of 104 limericks, modeled on those of Edward Lear. Author Anthony Madrid also wrote a dissertation on the subject of rhyme for the University of Chicago. His two other books of poetry are I Am Your Slave Now Do What I Say (2012) and Try Never (2017), both on Canarium. Illustrations for the limericks (and the covers of all Madrid’s books) by the inimitable Mark Fletcher.
