Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky is one of the few poems I've learned by heart and reciting it at odd moments...before school children, at family gatherings, in crowded elevators...has always lifted my spirits. Nick Bantock's pop-up illustrations add not only color and movement to the verse, but an unexpected (and macabre) surprise at the end! A first edition (based on price) in About Fine condition.
