Oh, a funny place is the Land of Nod,And funny the people there; The dewdrops all sprout like peas in a pod, While blossoms the doughnut fair. The griddle-cake bush runs syrup for sapThe plum-trees grow puddings so fat; Yes, the Land of Nod is the best on the map, The finest I ever was at. When Tinkie and Tess refuse to go to sleep on Christmas Eve, they catch the Sand Man on his evening rounds. The three of them fly away together on a moonbeam to the Land of Nod, where they encounter the Welsh Rabbit, the Educated Cow, King Snooze, and other extraordinary characters. This bedtime story classic features numerous enchanting illustrations from the original 1909 edition by Edward L. Chase.
