The Hunting of the Snark tells the tale of several characters who go on a sea journey, searching for a mythical creature called “The Snark” – whatever it may be, for the Snark is different things to each of the characters. The Baker’s uncle once told him, “If your Snark be a Boojum! … You will softly and suddenly vanish away, And never be met with again!”. Through this journey relationships develop, tensions rise and the Baker’s worst nightmare comes true. Richly brought to life with Peake’s exquisite drawings, this edition is a brilliant marriage of two extraordinary imaginations.
