`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird,

There, 1872)

"... and shun the frumious bandersnatch ..."

I feel it is important to note that this poem, or at least the 1st verse. Can be found in the Sci-Fi short story "Mimzy Were the Borogroves" which gave rize to the film "The Last Mimzy". Apparently the first verse is an instruction manuel for time travel! 80

OMG! This is so cute - not a traditional translation of the poem, but I really love how you've made it seem from the boys point of view. Nice.

I love this! With all the manga-hype given to Alice, it's nice to see this rather unappreciated poem given some love. The colors on all three pages are fantastic, and the design and layout or just wonderful. Nice work!

This is so adorable! This week my school did a performance of Alice in Wonderland and they had read the first part of the jaborwakee in it.
