Jub Jub bird

Jub Jub bird: 'A desperate bird that lives in perpetual passion', according to the Butcher in Carroll's later poem The Hunting of the Snark. 'Jub' is an ancient word for a jerkin or a dialect word for the trot of a horse (OED). It might make reference to the call of the bird resembling the sound "jub, jub". -per wikipedia

Everything Alice:
The Wonderland Book of Makes and Bakes
by Hannah Read-Baldry and Christine Leech
Release date: August 2011

Whether you’re looking to throw an Alice in Wonderland themed party or just love to add a bit of Mad Hatter whimsy to whatever you make, Everything Alice has something for you.

Inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Hannah Read-Baldery and Christine Leech dreamed up more than 30 projects to make and bake, including a hand-sewn White Rabbit toy, pompon-decorated slippers fit for a queen, a curious cake stand made out of vintage dishware and a selection of royally delicious recipes.

Add to the mix charming photography, exquisite paper-cut illustrations and snippets of Wonderland lore and you've got a craft and cookery book that's as fantastical and fun as the tales that inspired it.
