Lewis Carroll is known for his delightful children’s tales. He is perhaps best known for his classics, Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. This humorous poem tells the tale of an impossible voyage for an improbable crew hunting an imaginary creature.
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.
