Praise

“Delightfully surreal…save this book for the brightest and most adventurous young word-worms on your holiday shopping list…Singh’s daring illustrations will appeal to older children eager to leave the world of candy-colored cuteness behind.”
New Yorker

“At last, the legend of the brave, if peculiar, companions who set out to bag a snark (arming themselves “with forks and with hope”) gets lavish treatment from [Mahendra] Singh….These may be the fittest illustrations ever created for Carroll’s distinctively Victorian nonsense concoctions.”
—Laura Miller, Salon

“[C]hallenging and delightful.”
Marilyn Dahl, Shelf Awareness


“It is not children who ought to read the words of Lewis Carroll.”
G.K. Chesterton

“Singh’s black-and-white surrealistic treatment of Carroll’s classic poem is perfect…takes the ideology of Carroll’s nonsense to new visual levels. Far beyond a simplistic, literal depiction of the poem, each panel is thoughtfully created, filled with puzzles, jokes, and allusions.”
