And BookTrust ambassador and former Waterstones Children's Laureate Chris Riddell has added to the fun by creating some of his wonderful, quirky illustrations to accompany the verse.

Now, Macmillan have released a special edition of the book with a ribbon marker and metallic blue sprayed edges - so really, how could you resist?

To celebrate, we're giving away three copies of The Hunting of the Snark!

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Monday, 5 August. Good luck!
