The Gnat is a character in the novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll.

Description[]

The Gnat is a talking insect, the size of a chicken. The Gnat is fond of bad jokes, however, he doesn't like saying them himself, as he prefers others to make jokes. Alice meets the gnat on the Train, though she does not observe its size and only hears the creature in her ear, insisting she make his bad jokes. When Alice phases through the train and arrives at her destination, the Gnat comes with her and Alice observes its true height. The Gnat introduces her to three insects:the Rocking-Horse-Fly, the Snap-Dragonfly, and the Bread-and-Butterfly. After this, the gnat sighs itself away.
