Lewis Carroll was a man of diverse talent in mathematics, logic, photography, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. His famous books are among the most quoted works in the English language.
Gr. 3-5, younger for reading aloud. Much of the sly, entertaining, and sometimes just plain odd poetry that is scattered among Lewis Carroll's books is gathered here. Some of it is excerpted, and there's not always a clear indication of its source. However, there are nice introductions providing a bit of background (the "White Knight's Song"^B is a takeoff on Wordsworth, for example), and the occasional difficult word is glossed at the end of each poem. Eric Copeland's pictures are vigorously painted watercolors that reflect the daft or daffy text well and also support the one or two more serious verses. In a few cases, the text floats over a full illustration and is a bit hard to read. The anthology does provide a rollicking opportunity to read "Jabberwocky" and part of "The Hunting of the Snark" aloud, always a diverting occupation, but it might be more fun to open Alice and, as was said to her, "begin at the beginning."
