Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Although we suspect all along that the narrator is a Jabberwock, it's still quite a thrill at the end when the narrator shows her true form.

Con: The narrator doesn't succeed through her own efforts, but only because the Princess of Hearts allows her to. Her victory is way too easy.
