I thoroughly enjoyed how the author used Carroll's creative words throughout the story. It would definitely be a better read for an older child or any adult who loves Jabberwocky and Carroll's writing.

If you're looking for a book to teach you about Lewis Carroll, I suggest a Biography. The book basically just appropriates "Jabberwocky" and other words related to Lewis Carroll and tries to be whimsical. It's a Easy book, aimed at adults who know about the books and understand the references, while failing to be engaging or interesting. I do like the art style though. I'd follow this illustrator to a different book.
