            "Gladys loves nothing better than tinkering with car engines and driving at top speed. She also dreams of learning to fly a plane. But it's 1914 and people, especially her mother, keep reminding her that women are not supposed to be adventurous. When war comes, Gladys offers her ...services at the front as an ambulance driver. She receives an infuriating response from the War Office: 'This will be a short war and women will not be needed. If you want to help the war effort you should stay at home and knit socks and balaclavas.' But Gladys is not the kind of person who stays home and knits. She is determined to go to war"--Publisher information.

            "Gabriel Clutch was a thief and a liar but he was right about one thing. He told me he had a great secret in his collection that would shake the literary world to its roots if it ever got out." So begins the delightfully dark Snark, a tumultous romp through worlds created by Lewi...s Carroll and here brought to life through the vivid imaginings and art of author and illustrator David Elliot. What exactly did happen to the Snark expedition? Did his dagger-proof coat protect the Beaver from the Butcher? What befell the Boots in the Tulgey Wood? Who fell foul of the Jabberwock? The Bandersnatch? The Jubjub bird? And, finally, the big question: what precisely is a SNARK? David Elliot's hero, the Boots, here reveals the whole truth for the first time, from his recruitment to the Snark expedition, to his return from a journey of unimaginable, death-defying adventure.
