Why shouldn't the Jabberwocky be a fourteen-fingered, slam-dunking beast?
Lewis Carroll challenged readers' imaginations with his most famous poem, "Jabberwocky". Here, Christopher Myers takes on that challenge by brilliantly re-imagining it as a face off on the basketball court. In this fresh take on the classic poem, our brave hero has mad skills, and with the help of his Vorpal 2000s, he emerges triumphant.
Christopher Myers is a graduate of Brown University and the Whitney Museum of Art Independent Studio Program. His illustrations for "Harlem," written by his father, Walter Dean Myers, were awarded a Coretta Scott King Honor and a Caldecott Honor. His previous books include the critically acclaimed "Wings" and "Black Cat."
