John Tenniel : Alice, the Duchess, and the Baby

John Tenniel
Alice, the Duchess, and the Baby
Illustration to chapter 6 of Alice in Wonderland
Wood-engraving by Thomas Dalziel

`Oh, don't bother ME,' said the Duchess; `I never could abide figures!' And with that she began nursing her child again, singing a sort of lullaby to it as she did so, and giving it a violent shake at the end of every line:

Speak roughly to your little boy,
And beat him when he sneezes:
He only does it to annoy,
Because he knows it teases.
