Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Summary


Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

A wonderful 150th-anniversary edition of Lewis Carroll's timeless classic, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury in this beautiful award-winning interpretation. For a century and a half Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll's classic story of logic and lunacy, has delighted young and old alike. Gorgeously illustrated, this award-winning rendition is full of warmth and humour. The whole approach is contemporary and accessible: Alice herself is a child of today - casually dressed, personable, spirited. In Helen Oxenbury's hands, the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland is a wondrous place indeed!

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Reviews


A wonderful 150th-anniversary edition of Lewis Carroll's timeless classic, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury in this beautiful award-winning interpretation. Full of the most wondrous wit and humour, wonderful magic and believable nonsense, this particular edition has the most stunning illustrations that complement the imaginative story that's anything but dull. The story is timeless and can be read at so many different levels. It's a book that can be read by people of all ages; for children it's a wonderful underworld fantasy that will develop a passion for reading imaginative writing and for everyone else there's innuendo, puzzling situations that require deciphering, political machinations and bucket loads of surrealism. Plenty of food for thought and a real antidote to the modern world. * Love Reading 4 Kids *

Lewis Carroll was born on 27 January 1832. He was educated at Christ Church, Oxford, and went on to become a mathematics lecturer there from 1855 to 1881. Lewis Carroll's most famous works are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (published 1865) and the sequel Alice Through the Looking-Glass, which contained the nonsense poem classic The Jabberwocky (published 1872). Lewis Carroll died of bronchitis on 14 July 1898. Helen Oxenbury is among the most popular and critically acclaimed illustrators of her time. Her numerous books for children include Smarties Book Prize-winning Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell; We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen; as well as her classic board books for babies. She won the Kate Greenaway Medal for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
