The Hunting of the Snark
Lewis Carroll’s classic nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark follows a band of oafish misfits as they undertake an epic quest to catch a fantastical creature known as the Snark. Led by the bombastic and bewildering Bellman, the crew sets out with enthusiasm, a blank map—and no clear idea of what they’re doing.
This newly illustrated edition contains all the delightful darkness and droll sarcasm of Carroll’s original text; and yet, wood engraver George A. Walker cleverly reimagines the tale through his illustrations, drawing from the world of presidential politics to recast the story. In so doing, Walker creates an irresistible commentary on contemporary America, memorializing a baffling political climate and providing a sharp new way of looking at a familiar poem.

Review: The Hunting Of The SnarkUser Review - David - Goodreads
This book has the sense of humor of the Alice stories, but in a rhyme format. The poetry was good enough, but I didn't find any of it all that funny. I thought it was a bit predictable and boring. Read full review
