About the Author:

LEWIS CARROLL, creator of the landmark children's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, was a pseudonym for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, an Oxford don who was educated at Christ Church College in Oxford,England, where he lectured in mathematics. In addition to his keen interest in photography and inventing games and puzzles, he wrote fantastical tales and humorous verse, including Phantasmagoria and Other Poems, Through the Looking-Glass, the sequel to the adventures of Alice, and The Hunting of the Snark. Born in 1832, Dodgson died in 1898 of influenza.
 
OLEG LIPCHENKO is Canadian artist of Ukrainian origin. He is a member of the Ukrainian Union of Artists and CANSCAIP; his superb technique and strong sense of design reflect his background in architecture. He has exhibited his paintings extensively in Canada and across Europe. Oleg Lipchenko's previous books for Tundra include the gorgeously illustrated Humpty Dumpty and Friends and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which won IBBY Canada's Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Award.

Review:

 “...Oleg Lipchenko’s style seems perfectly suited to Carroll’s thoroughly Victoria brand of literary psychedelia ... kids will get sucked in by the visuals alone. Best of all, his images provide enough fodder to inspire a hundred alternate stories.”
Quill & Quire

“...Past editions of this nonsense classic have been illustrated with woodcut prints, pen-and-ink drawings, and in a graphic-novel format, and now with Lipchenko’s detailed drawings. His art creates a dream landscape that mirrors the elusive text and sustains one’s sense of an impending snark attack. This is a “gift book and a collector’s edition,” but with the push to read more rigorous texts, teachers might appreciate finding the elusive snark in the library.”
—School Library Journal

“Lewis Carroll's epic nonsense poem is presented in all of its unabridged, bewildering glory.... Oleg Lipchenko's outstanding charcoal illustrations interpret the verse for a new generation. The pages are luxuriously detailed, and there's lots to pore over.... The sepia tones in the illustrations evoke a dark, brooding atmosphere ... children and the adults in their lives will all enjoy the marvelously odd characters and every curious word.”
—Highly Recommended, CM Magazine
