The Walrus did beseech. A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk, Along the briny beach: We cannot do with more than four, To give a hand to each.

The lack of 5 stars has nothing to do with the content here. Carroll is an all-time great.

The prefect score is withheld because personally, I like the original illustrations better than these. I would have also liked there to be MORE illustrations--perhaps one for each stanza in the Walrus and the Carpenter, for example. My 1.5 y/o tends to get bored if he has to look at the same pic for too long.

Overall though, a unique and cool book for your collection.

READ TO YOUR KIDS EVERYDAY FOLKS!

First time purchasing an item for my kindle. I was surprised that I didnt like the layout. It was a vertical scrolling page with no lines between verses. Quite hard to read.
I would not recommend this product - unless you know for a fact that Im just a noob who doesnt know how to use the Kindle App.
