KIRKUS REVIEW

A special item that should hold a definite fascination for old Carrollians and perhaps some new- are these poems ""we wrote ourselves about the year 1845..."" or when Carroll was and starting the first of the ""domestic magazines in this family."" The poetry has its morals; the illustrations are active and ugly; vocabulary is impressive; rhymes are dexterous and the humor is schoolboy- of advanced standing. For the Alice addicts they show the promise of future writings and the path the boy's personality and career was to take.
