Publisher Comments:

"So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible." --Alice in Wonderland

Alice is one of the most beloved characters of English writing. A bright and inquisitive child, one boring summer afternoon she follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole, at the bottom she finds herself in a bizarre world full of strange creatures, and attends a very strange tea party and croquet match. This immensely witty and unique story mixes satire and puzzles, comedy and anxiety, to provide an astute depiction of the experience of childhood.

About the Author

Lewis Carroll (1832–1898) was the pen name for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. A mathematics lecturer at Oxford, Dodgson enjoyed mathematical puzzles and jokes, several of which are included in his best-known works, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872). John Tenniel (1820–1914) provided the original illustrations for Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.
