Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Paperback / softback (October 2016)View all books by Lewis Carroll
The classic story of a young girl who falls through a rabbit hole and into a fantasy world populated by peculiar characters. Meet the anxious White Rabbit, the mischievous Cheshire Cat and the crazy Mad Hatter. Listen to the Mock Turtle's sad story and heed the advice of the hookah-smoking Caterpillar. The story has delighted readers since 1865.
UK Kirkus Review » The gift edition of Carroll's immortal books combines the best features of all past editions. Large format, clear type, Tenniel line drawings and the delicious colour plates prepared for the 1911 edition. (7-10 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
US Kirkus Review » Laszlo Matulay has based his big splashy colored pictures on the traditional Tenniel drawings, but the text adaptation holds small justification. The familiar rhythms and pattern of words which make Alice a family possession through life have gone, and what is left serves merely as transitional material connecting the favorite poems which, thank goodness, have not been tampered with. Boards. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was born on 27th January 1832 at Daresbury in Cheshire. He studied at Christ Church, Oxford University and later became a mathematics lecturer there. He wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872) for the daughters of the Dean of Christ Church. He was very fond of puzzles and some readers have found mathematical jokes and codes hidden in his Alice books. His other works include Phantasmagoria and Other Poems (1869), The Hunting of the Snark (1876), Rhyme? And Reason? (1882), The Game of Logic (1887) and Sylvie and Bruno (1889, 1893). Dodgson was also an influential photographer. He died on 14th January 1898.
