    One thought on “Poetry for Young People: Lewis Carroll”

    1. I have never really been a fan of poetry. This almost seems strange to me, as I have been a huge enthusiast of rap music (which is often called “rhythm and poetry”) and of writing poetry. Regardless, reading poetry has always failed to interest me, whether it be because of its vague nature or its strange format. Yet, reading Lewis Carroll's compilation of poems in the “Poetry for Young People” collection was nothing like my original experiences with poetry.You may have heard of Lewis Car [...]

    2. This is for a school project so other people reading this, don’t question the format or people I refer to.Poetry for Young People: Lewis Carroll is a book that contains many small poems in them so I can't really write a summary of it. I really liked the beautifully illustrated pictures and my favourite poem from it is the Jabberwocky. There are words that make no sense and it makes it sound really cool.For example, "Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that snatch! Bewa [...]

    3. This book has many poems in it. Some are long, short, and medium. I had a good time reading these different poems. I noticed that in this book the author put a quote or an explanation of what the poem was about. I thought they were interesting poems and some that were a little different. I also noticed that they were sometimes in old English and then in a different type of English. Some of the poems had their own spelling to normal words. I thought it was cool how it was a bunch of different sto [...]

    4. I know Lewis Carroll to be most famous for his Alice in wonderland and Through the looking glass but I didn't know he was a poet!Now my life is complete!In some of the poems you can tell that it's targeted at an older "young people" crowd but its mostly simple poems.Carroll lived during a different time than we do today so most of his humor is from his period you can pick up on that.It's a delightful children's edition of his work.I recommend it for kid's that know how to read already and are wa [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book. Overall it has a great selection of poems by Lewis Carroll and great art work by Erik Copeland. The art work really complimented the poems. What i really enjoyed about this book was that before every poem there was background information given. It talked about if they poem was a parody or from Through the looking glass and other fun facts. They also would include a definition of words that could be unfamiliar to young readers. This is a great book for young readers in [...]

    6. Read this to the kids to find some poetry more to their liking, but honestly, I got tired of all the silliness by the end.

    7. a good selection of poems and information about the poems explaining them to childreni love the way this series presents the poems with beautiful pictures and explianations

    8. The illustrations are beautiful! I love that fact that this book has different poems; however, it would only teach about rhyming poems.

    9. Amusing poems from the author of "Jabberwhocky". Many, if not most, poke fun at early 18th century poetry.
