Description
With fantastic characters and enchanting, rhythmic, and sometimes nonsense language, Lewis Carroll created magical wonderlands. In his worlds, many things appear upside down and inside out, the rules of logic just don't apply, and everything pompous gets cut down to size. No surprise, then, that children love to visit there, sliding down the rabbit hole with Alice, battling the dreaded Jabberwock, or hunting for that mythical Snark. Carroll's classic works have never lost their fascination, and these 26 selections, along with Eric Copeland's savagely funny paintings that bring his fantastic realms to life, will become favorites with young readers. They'll also appreciate uncovering the true stories behind each tale and learning that many of Carroll's poems mocked the most popular--and humorless--verses of his period. Included are many beloved excerpts from the Alice books, as well as "The Walrus and the Carpenter," "Father William," and others, all especially wonderful to read aloud! Particularly beneficial for reading along with children are notes on unfamiliar words and recurrent themes, a word glossary, and a biography of the inscrutable and complex Carroll--aka Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
