The Hunting of the Snark , ,

They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care;
They pursued it with forks and hope;
They threatened its life with a railway-share;
They charmed it with smiles and soap.

Lewis Carroll’s magnificent nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark features an unlikely cast of characters drawn from the Jabberwocky in Through the Looking-Glass. This irresistible version is illustrated, and has an introduction by, Chris Riddell.

It was first published by Macmillan in 1876.
