You never know where you’ll find yourself in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll!
On an ordinary summer’s afternoon, Alice tumbles down a hole and an extraordinary adventure begins. In a strange world with even stranger characters, she meets a grinning cat and a rabbit with a pocket watch, joins a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, and plays croquet with the Queen! Lost in this fantasy land, Alice finds herself growing more and more curious by the minute . . .
Alice was just an ordinary girl – imaginative and curious and thirsting for adventure. She was an ordinary girl, that is, until she found herself instantly transported to a place that was anything but ordinary. After diving down a rabbit hole, young Alice encounters a magical world ruled by a vicious Queen. It is a world where anything can happen; a world filled with a talking caterpillar, a puppy as big as a house, and a Cheshire cat that can disappear and reappear in the blink of an eye. Are these colorful characters real? And if so, how will Alice ever find her way back home?
Beloved for more than a century, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is widely viewed as Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece; a fantastic journey that will never be forgotten.
Be careful when ordering this because it includes through the looking glass as well, in case you already own this. It is not a large book, in fact not much bigger than a small paperback. But does have a lovely front and back hardback jacket design. With lots of lovely black and white illustrations. Runs to 311 pages and is part of the new V & A Puffin Classics series which also includes the Great Gatsby and Emma. Would make a great gift for both Alice and classic book fans alike.
Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-98), grew up in Cheshire in the village of Daresbury, the son of a parish priest. He was a brilliant mathematician, a skilled photographer and a meticulous letter and diary writer. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, inspired by Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church in Oxford, was published in 1865, followed by Through the Looking-Glass in 1871. He wrote numerous stories and poems for children including the nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark and fairy stories Sylvie and Bruno.
