    Fun, Smart Read!

    This short book did a great job of building a whole world behind the scenes of a poem. Whether you know the poem or not, you'll enjoy the epic story that emerges from the limited details in the poem. You'll never think of the jabberwocky the same again.

    i mourned the Jabberwocky, too :(

    Having fallen in love with the Alice books in childhood, the idea of a story about the Jabberwocky poem easily caught my fancy. And when I finally got the chance to pick this up from my TBR queue, I could hardly put it down.

    Who would've thought so much adventure and drama could be extracted from Lewis Carroll's fanciful stanzas about a vicious creature known as the Jabberwock? Coming up with an elaboration such as this was an ingenious idea in itself, and Daniel Coleman did well in justifying each stanza with a storyline that can rival any of its contemporaries in the YA Fantasy genre without being too complicated and wordy.

    What I like most about this book is that it gives the reader a chance to see the Jabberwocky in a different light by giving it a personality and a purpose. The 'real' villain is very well hidden in a cloak of honor and dignity; the hero has an equal balance of courage and sensibility; and the sidekick provides an occasional sprinkling of humor as any good sidekick should.

    The conversation Tjaden had with the Cheshire cat on his way to slay the Jabberwocky is definitely the most entertaining scene in the book for me, reflecting all too well the author's own humor and wit.

    The book does not really dawdle in lengthy backstories about the characters, so there isn't really much time to develop lasting connections with them. It does, however, present them in ways that make them come to life with an uncomplicated purpose and focused determination. Even the Jabberwocky might end up pulling at a heartstring or two.

    If you're up for a fast-paced, light read with just the right amount of adventure and YA Fantasy drama, you will definitely find something to like about this book. ^-^

    Frabjous

    Loved how this story gives us more details on the various creatures that come from Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky poem.

    In this novella the stanzas have their own fairy tale-like stories to reveal the mysteries behind each. The most interesting one of course was the story of the Jabberwock.

    You will cheer for the hero and his lady love. And, you will boo the foe. But then, there is a twisty happening at the end where the foe is redefined.

    Beware the Jabberwock

    Great read; perfect for all ages. The story stands alone as a fun fantasy novela but it really shines if you are a fan of Lewis Carroll. It expands the world that Alice visits in his classics "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There"

    Recommend to anyone looking for a creative fast paced fantasy story.

    I was a little worried starting this book. I always have loved

    I was a little worried starting this book. I always have loved Alice in Wonderland (at least… as portrayed by Disney in animation… and Tim Burton with Johnny Depp… and most recently on ABC on Once Upon a Time in Wonderland). But… the couple of times I attempted to read anything written by Lewis Carroll my brain would go into a complete jumble. Even when I understand the words… I don’t understand the meaning. And The Jabberwocky? Well.. I gave up even understanding the words a long time ago. I mean seriously… ’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:”…. what does that mean????

    Daniel Coleman’s The Jaberwocky sounded interesting… so I gave Lewis Carroll a try again (in a round-a-bout way). And do you know what? I would let Daniel Coleman explain Lewis Carroll poems to me any day. Any. Day. He absolutely won me over. Tjaden was an amazing character. Regardless of his bravery… he remains humble. From the moment you meet him you just feel like you know his heart. I was just as in love with Elora as Tjaden was. Her self-confidence was truly inspiring. I’d love for Coleman to continue his story of TJaden and Elora… and Ollie… and Lily…

    And now… I finally understand a Lewis Carroll Poem! At least… I understand it in the way Daniel Coleman has written his story. I can even actually tell you what ’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:” means now. How ’bout that?

    I mourned the jabberwocky too!

    I loved the Alice in Wonderland movie. One of my favorite parts is when the Hatter recites the Jabberwocky poem. So, i loved this story that was created from the poem. The author is amazing!! I loved this book and read it in a day!!

    Who needs Alice?

    Awesome read! Would have paid much more than $0. I loved the characters and the tight story line. Even better, my kids enjoyed it more than Harry Potter! More, please?
