GRAHAM HALE GARDNER died before turning twenty-three and never learned to walk or speak, due to severe cerebral palsy. Yet he left a legacy of love and compassion that deeply moved scores of people from widely different backgrounds. Jabberwocky is a story of adversity, resilience, and, ultimately, transformation and grace. Against the backdrop of a pioneering summer camp for the disabled, a place where hope flourishes and whimsicality prevails, Graham and his father encounter an eclectic group of people whose laughter, mutual support and love offer a message of hope in a troubled world.
