With fantastic characters and enchanting language, Lewis Carroll created magical wonderlands children have always loved to visit. These 26 selections from his classic works have never lost their fascination. "Softly realistic, period-style watercolors effectively highlight the mood of each selection....vocabulary or context notes on just about every page, and the book opens with a brief but illuminating biography."--School Library Journal. "The illustrations are well-matched to Carroll's texts. Colorful watercolors provide plenty of action and excitement on every page."--Lorgnette.

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."
