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.

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.

The writer Lewis Carroll, before the pseudonym, conveyed the real name: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was a scholar at the Oxford academy, majoring in mathematics. Possessing solely knowledge of the books, Dodgson was indeed limited due towards education. It was then, when he had developed a friendship between the daugther of the head master, Alice Liddell--since Dodgson had autism and could not socialize with adults easily--that he was able to become that "mad" writer people consider him. And so, on a Christmas day--after promising Alice to writer her a storybook, Dodgson--nay, Carroll, wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and bestowed it to Alice as a gift (which explains why there is a Christmas poem as a prologue.
There has been a controversy that this is not the complete works of 'Lewis Carroll'; that is incorrect. For, we must consider that 'Lewis Carroll' and 'Charles Lutwidge Dodgson' as two different entities sharing the same body and perhaps mind. It is quite simple--and logical, that Lewis Carroll be a side of this 'entity' to publish beloved works as 'Charles Lutwidge Dodgson' be another mathematician instead.
And what of the works that are not included within this book? As remarked before, those are Dodgson's--not Carroll's. Besides, if this were titled 'The Complete Works of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson', this would convey a few works--but also his scribbles and mistakes that all children do when endeavoring to learn the English language.
So do not remark another complaint, and consider: who is Lewis Carroll and who is Charles Lutwidge Dodgson?
