Product Description:

This is 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.
