Grade 1-3 Zalben's wonderfully detailed double-page watercolors enhance Carroll's familiar poem. A companion volume to Jabberwocky (Albert Whitman, 1985), this book should introduce many new readers to Carroll's special nonsense verse and perhaps entice them to read the complete Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass . Even children too young to understand Carroll's humor will be enticed by the illustrations, most of which contain enough detail to keep their attention for longer than a cursory glance. One illustration particularly stands out. As the oysters approach shore to supposedly dine with the walrus and his friend, there is clear warning of their impending doom: a tin of oysterette crackers and a plump jar of oyster saucebut the oysters approach undaunted. A few sensitive children might cringe at a later page showing the empty oyster shells and the 11 pairs of shoes abandoned on the sand, but the total delights of this book should override this concern.
