The A-Z of Limericks is a whimsical collection of 501 individual five-line rhymes composed by first-time author Trevor P. Morley. Taking his inspiration from a style of limerick that was originally regarded as somewhat vulgar when Edward Lear first popularized it in the late 19th century, Morley’s aim is to tickle his reader’s fancy with a decidedly cleaner style of wit.
While the 501 jest-filled rhymes in this book are untitled, each contains a person’s first name and has its own subject. The rhymes are constructed in a traditional AABBA rhyme scheme, with the B lines being shorter than the A lines. The A-Z of Limericks is the perfect book to pick up and peruse for a delightful afternoon of literary amusement.
