While walking on a hillside, an unusual line occurred to Lewis Carroll: "For the Snark was a Boojum, you see." Carroll later incor...porated the phrase into a complete work that became the best-known nonsense poem of all time: "The Hunting of the Snark."<br><br>What could be more of a delight to young readers? Here in one book is Carroll's famed poem with its original illustrations by Henry Holliday, side by side with Martin Gardner's "Snarkteasers" - delightfully puzzling questions like these:<br><br><br>- Can you rearrange the letters of OCEAN to spell something in which one can<br>spend days in the ocean? But if the ocean is frisky, it's risky.<br><br><br>- Seven is certainly an odd number of coats to be wearing. Can you make the<br>number even by crossing out one letter?<br><br><br>- See if you can change one letter of SNAIL to make a word that describes a<br>sound made by certain wild animals. Next, try changing the first<br>two letters of SHARK to one letter and make a four-letter word<br>that describes a sound made by a certain tame animal.<br><br>Young Snark-hunters have been sailing along with that extraordinary sea-going crew in search of a Snark since the poem was first published a century ago. And Martin Gardner's Snarkteasers are sure to make their fantastic voyage more enchanting than ever before. A delightful dividend for Snark fans is the text of another famous Carroll poem, "Jabberwocky," complete with Sir John Tenniel's famous drawings. Read More
