I really wanted to fall in love with this book, with its Jabberwocky-inspired verse and illustrations by the accomplished Barry Moser, but I fell short of elation. Props to the illustrations for their dark-night feel and the fact that eyes will appear out of the shadows if you look long enough. But I guess when it comes to verse, it felt like a strain to tell this story in Jabberwocky rhythm but with different words. However, with the right reader, this could be a fun readaloud.

Tamara I keep thinking of the Jabberwocky's from America's Best Dance Crew. Ah, maybe I should cut back on the TV. :)

Rebecca Hahaha! Yes, even they took their name from somewhere! :)
