Arguably Australia's best-loved rhyme-maker, the 'Laureate of the Larrikin' achieved fame as the author of Songs of the Sentimental Bloke, first published in 1915. This latest offering from the National Library brings together 15 of C.J. Dennis' poems, delightfully illustrated with images from the National Library's outstanding Pictures Collection. Laugh your way through the hi-jinks of 'The Bloke', Ginger Mick, and Doreen and Digger Smith, to name a few. An Australian classic, entertaining and enjoyable, C.J. Dennis: A Collection of Verse is a perfect gift for all the family.
