What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care; They pursued it with forks and hope; They threatened its life with a railway-share; They charmed it with smiles and soap. First published by Macmillan in 1876, Lewis Carroll’s magnificent nonsense poem, The Hunting of the Snark, features an unlikely cast of characters drawn from the Jabberwocky in Through the Looking Glass. This irresistible paperback edition features an introduction from and artwork by Chris Riddell. The wonderful characters are vividly brought to life with both Chris’s black and white illustrations and his colour artwork, making it a perfect gift for any poetry lover.
