Praise

 “…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
