Editorial Reviews


“Hussey’s exquisitely detailed illustrations heighten the sense of absurdity and make Carroll’s nonsense real.” -- Good Book Guide

“Makes a tasty literary snack on the way to Wonderland.” -- Kirkus Reviews

From the Publisher

“‘The time has come,’ the Walrus said, / ‘To talk of many things: / Of shoes—and ships—and sealing wax— / Of cabbages—and kings— / And why the sea is boiling hot— / And whether pigs have wings.’” Turn the pages and delight once again in the timeless verse of Lewis Carroll. Familiar favorites like “The Walrus and the Carpenter,” “Jabberwocky,” and “Father William” are all here, and who can resist another visit? Lorna Hussey’s gorgeous illustrations dazzle the eye, bringing to life a world that’s gone wonderfully askew.

Format: Paperback
There are so many options available for those in search of the classic verse of Lewis Carroll. Other offerings provide a better variety of Carroll's work, but I bought this book for the illustrations. They are quite traditional and classic in style; many with a sweet and endearing quality. The colours are rich and the work finely detailed. This book presents a very refined walrus complete with epaulettes. A delishious bathing crocodile with shower cap; a caterpillar with a love of shoes; regal badgers and kingfishers and a very cute (though not particularly fierce) jabberwocky.

If you love Lewis Carroll and already have a collection, this may be one to add along with Nicki Palins Owls and Pussycats should the illustrations suit your taste.

With about a dozen verses, this is not a particularly extensive body of Carroll's work but beautiful illustrations for what is offered compensates for the breadth.
