The world's best-loved nonsense poem inspires a fresh, enchantingly surreal treatment in this beautiful edition from an exciting new talent. 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. So begins "Jabberwocky," one of the most celebrated nonsense poems in the English language. The poem first appeared in 1872 in Lewis Carroll's classic THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE, and since then, its mysterious and lyrical lines have delighted readers of all ages. With great wit and imagination, illustrator Joel Stewart offers a singular vision of the world of "Jabberwocky" and all its memorable creatures.

This is well illustrated and family friendly, which is not what the poem actually is (Lewis Carroll did not like a particular teacher, who plays the Jabberwocky...). Fun for family friendly nonsensical poetry.
