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.

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

On a boring summer afternoon, the bright and inquisitive Alice follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole. At the bottom, she finds herself immersed in a bizarre world full of strange creatures and bizarre goings-on. She tries pills and potions, and attends a very strange tea party and croquet match. An immensely witty mix of satire, puzzles, and drama, this is one of literatures most astute depictions of the experience of childhood.

Synopsis:

Curiouser and Curiouser, cried Alice.

In this Wonderland adventure, Alice attempts to make sense of a nonsensical world, along the way meeting some of the most intriguing characters, including the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and Tweedledee and Tweedledum.

LEWIS CARROLL's real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was born on January 27th, 1832 at Daresbury in Cheshire. He studied at Christ Church, Oxford University and later became a mathematics lecturer there. He wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872) for the daughters of the Dean of Christ Church.
