Description - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass by Charlie Lovett
These unforgettable tales-filled with sparkling wordplay and unbridled imagination-balance joyous nonsense with poignant moments of longing for the lost innocence of childhood.
A deluxe edition of Lewis Carroll's timeless tale of wondrously charming nonsense, in time for its 150th anniversary
When Alice follows the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole, little does she know that she is traveling to a world of magic where common-sense is turned upside-down. The dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and the backwards Looking-Glass kingdom are full of the unexpected- a baby turns into a pig, time is missing at a tea-party, and a wild chess game makes the seven-year-old Alice a queen. Displaying Lewis Carroll's gift for sparkling wordplay, puzzles, and riddles, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass offer magical adventure, pointed satire of Victorian England, and playful explorations of sophisticated logic. Yet amid Carroll's antic humor and joyful creation, poignant moments of nostalgia for fleeting childhood give the stories extraordinary emotional depth. And wherever Carroll takes Alice, John Tenniel's iconic illustrations follow with whimsical depictions of her tizzying journeys. Original, experimental, and unparalleled for pure delight, the adventures of Alice in Wonderland are tales to be read and shared across generations.

Author Biography - Charlie Lovett
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, best-known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was a man of diverse interests- mathematics, logic, photography, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. He was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games, and charming letters. His book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872. His books are among the most quoted works in the English language, and his influence (with that of his illustrator, Sir John Tenniel) can be seen everywhere, from the world of advertising to that of atomic physics.Charlie Lovett is a former antiquarian bookseller and an avid book collector, especially relating to Lewis Carroll. He is the author of The New York Times bestseller The Bookman's Tale and First Impressions.
