Publishers Description: Larry Pickering, well-known cartoonist and humorist, has been a staunch admirer of C.J. Dennis since his youth. In this book we discover new dimensions to Pickering's capabilities - a collection of unique watercolour drawings that capture the subtle, varying moods of Dennis's poems; indeed, a sensitive salute from one talented Australian to another.C.J. Dennis was the tagged "The Laureate of the Larrikin" because of the mass popularity of his verse and his poetic use of Australian slang. His The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke, first published in 1915, has sold over 300,000 copies - more than any other book of Australian verse. Material in this new selection combines old Dennis favourites with several less familiar but equally endearing ones.
