The author was inspired by the poem "Jaberwocky" to make an exquisitely told cautionary tale using rich, evocative language. A cocky little risk-a-rascal goes scoutaprowl into the dark swamp, despite all dire warnings from his eldermice. The combination of the poetic language and the beautiful, dark watercolors by Barry Moser makes this children's book a terrific read-aloud and a keeper for the ages. If you have a child who loves expressive language, this is your book. Once Upon a Twice was chosen as an honor book in the E. B. White Read-Aloud Awards for 2010.
