Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The Poetry for Young People series adds Lewis Carroll, edited by Edward Mendelson, illus. by Eric Copeland. All the favorites can be found, from "The Walrus and the Carpenter" to the classic "Jabberwocky," and annotations supply definitions for challenging vocabulary. Copeland, meanwhile, works against the indelible John Tenniel images with robustly colored art, the realistic grounding of which throws the absurd elements into droll relief.

Gr 3 Up-This series title focuses on the poetry of the famous British writer. Softly realistic, period-style watercolors effectively highlight the mood of each selection. Most of the pieces are given their own page or a double-page spread. While the type is small, the format is large enough to be successful with small groups. The jokes and language that Carroll used are sometimes lost on modern audiences and may need explaining. As with the earlier titles, there are vocabulary or context notes on just about every page, and the book opens with a brief but illuminating biography.-Cris Riedel, Ellis B.
