Jabberwocky: The Classic Poem from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jabberwocky is the first book in an exciting and unique new series--Visions in Poetry--from Kids Can Press that will feature classic poems illustrated by outstanding contemporary artists in handsomely bound collectable hardcover editions. Visions in Poetry will showcase some of the most talented book illustrators working today. The most celebrated nonsense poem in the English language, Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky has delighted readers of all ages since it was first published in Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, in 1872. Stephane Jorisch's stunningly inventive art adds a vibrant, surprising dimension to an already unforgettable poem.

Review:

"In his kinetic interpretation of Carroll's famous verse, Myers (Jazz) gives the poem a contemporary urban setting and a basketball theme. As the book begins, a girl looks over her shoulder while jumping rope with two others. A flip of the page shows what has distracted her: the dread Jabberwock, a towering, dark figure holding a basketball, flashing ominous-looking teeth ('The jaws that bite') and displaying enormous, seven-fingered hands ('The claws that catch!'). A boy takes on the task of besting the beast, donning stark white shoes ('his vorpal sword') and wordlessly challenging the Jabberwock to a game of one-on-one. Electric hues in the backdrops set off Myers's stylized figures and large multicolored font. While the merit of imposing a narrative logic on a work celebrated for its nonsense remains debatable, Myers's version will expose the Carroll classic to kids who otherwise may not encounter it. Ages 5-9. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

With his signature exuberant, high-energy art, Christopher Myers delivers this radically new interpretation of Carrolls beloved poem, brilliantly reimagining it as a face-off on the basketball court. Full color.

Synopsis:

Why shouldn't the Jabberwocky be a fourteen-fingered, slam-dunking beast?

Lewis Carroll challenged readers' imaginations with his most famous poem, "Jabberwocky". Here, Christopher Myers takes on that challenge by brilliantly re-imagining it as a face off on the basketball court. In this fresh take on the classic poem, our brave hero has mad skills, and with the help of his Vorpal 2000s, he emerges triumphant.
