Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Poetry for Young People series adds Lewis Carroll, edited by Edward Mendelson, illus. by Eric Copeland. All the favorites can be found, from "The Walrus and the Carpenter" to the classic "Jabberwocky," and annotations supply definitions for challenging vocabulary. Copeland, meanwhile, works against the indelible John Tenniel images with robustly colored art, the realistic grounding of which throws the absurd elements into droll relief.

From School Library Journal

Gr 3 Up-This series title focuses on the poetry of the famous British writer. Softly realistic, period-style watercolors effectively highlight the mood of each selection. Most of the pieces are given their own page or a double-page spread. While the type is small, the format is large enough to be successful with small groups. The jokes and language that Carroll used are sometimes lost on modern audiences and may need explaining. As with the earlier titles, there are vocabulary or context notes on just about every page, and the book opens with a brief but illuminating biography.-Cris Riedel, Ellis B. Hyde Elementary School, Dansville, NY

Format: Hardcover
I cannot think of a better way to introduce the poetry of Lewis Carroll than this small volume. The selection is excellent and of interest you the young reader. The commentary is quite relevant as are the pictures which accompany it. I find that often now, our young people go all the way through the early grades in school and many of them have never heard of carroll,much less read their poetry. This was the sort of stuff my generation and the generation before it grew up on and cut our teeth on. I do not feel I am any worse for the wear. I am fearful that we are bringing up an entire generation (rightfully or wrong, although I feel it is the later) of young folks who will have no appreciation to this great art form and will miss a lot. This book helps. This entire series helps, as a matter of fact and I certainly recommend you add this one and the others to your library. Actually, it is rather fun reading these with the young folk and then talking about them. Not only do you get to enjoy the work your self and perhaps bring back some great memories, but you have the opportunity to interact with your child or student. It is actually rather surprising what some of the kids come up with. I read these to my grandchildren and to the kids in my classes at school. For the most part, when I really get to discussing the work with them, they enjoy it. Recommend this one highly.

We were looking for accessible poetry for our kids, and these are even better than I had expected. The Carroll edition has great illustrations, and my son loves it.
