Most widely held works by Eric Copeland
Lewis Carroll by Lewis Carroll( Book )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,021 libraries worldwide
With fantastic characters and enchanting, rhythmic, and sometimes nonsense language, Lewis Carroll created magical wonderlands. In his worlds, many things appear upside down and inside out, the rules of logic just don't apply, and everything pompous gets cut down to size. No surprise, then, that children love to visit there, sliding down the rabbit hole with Alice, battling the dreaded Jabberwock, or hunting for that mythical Snark. Carroll's classic works have never lost their fascination, and these 26 selections, along with Eric Copeland's savagely funny paintings that bring his fantastic realms to life, will become favorites with young readers. They'll also appreciate uncovering the true stories behind each tale and learning that many of Carroll's poems mocked the most popular--and humorless--verses of his period. Included are many beloved excerpts from the Alice books, as well as "The Walrus and the Carpenter," "Father William," and others, all especially wonderful to read aloud! Particularly beneficial for reading along with children are notes on unfamiliar words and recurrent themes, a word glossary, and a biography of the inscrutable and complex Carroll--aka Charles Lutwidge Dodgson

Milton, my father's dog by Eric Copeland( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 237 libraries worldwide
A father's hilarious love for a dog, and a boy's slow appreciation of that same dog. Fraser has always wanted a dog, but when Dad brings home a large sheepdog named Milton, it is not the gentle puppy Fraser wanted ₆ far from it. The new dog is a menace to Fraser, knocking him down, jumping all over him, and dragging him along on their walks. All the while Fraser₂s dad thinks Milton can do no wrong. He even builds a doghouse for Milton, which the dog promptly destroys. Could Milton ever be a pet for Fraser? It is not many fathers who can see themselves through their children₂s eyes, but Eric Copeland succeeds in recreating how ridiculous ₆ and funny ₆ he looked to his son

With fantastic characters and enchanting language, Lewis Carroll created magical wonderlands children have always loved to visit. These 26 selections from his classic works have never lost their fascination. "Softly realistic, period-style watercolors effectively highlight the mood of each selection. ... vocabulary or context notes on just about every page, and the book opens with a brief but illuminating biography."--"School Library Journal. "The illustrations are well-matched to Carroll's texts. Colorful watercolors provide plenty of action and excitement on every page."--"Lorgnette
