The Jabberwocky

The Jabberwocky is a beast from Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll. In the story Alice finds an account of the Jabberwocky in a book which she is only able to read after holding up to a mirror. The monster is described with vague attributes, such as with "Jaws that bite," "Claws that catch," and "eyes of flame." The illustrations by John Tenniel for the book in 1871 have remained the most popular interpretation of the creature.
