Grabberwocky

Grabberwocky and Other Flights of Fancy by Michael Barsley. I also have his other Alice themed book- Alice in Wunderground.

Illustrated by Osbert Lancaster.

First published by John Murray, 1939. This is the third printing from 1941. Softback- pamphlet really…

A  satirical examination of Britain at the outbreak of  World War II by means of a series of fun verses, including a Jabberwocky parody:

‘Twas Danzig, and the Swastikoves
Did Heil and Hittle in the Reich
All Nazi were the Lindengroves
And the Neurat Jewstreich.

Beware the Grabberwock, my Son
The Plans that spawn, the Plots that hatch,
Beware the JewJew Bird, and shun
The führious Bundesnatch.

He took his Aryan Horde in Hand
Long Time the Gestapo He taught
Then rested He by the Baltic Sea
And stood awhile in Thought.

Available on Amazon: Grabberwocky and other Fights of Fancy … Illustrated by Osbert Lancaster
