Lewis Carroll’s classic tale began as a story told to a group of children on a boating picnic in 1862 and was first published as Alice’s Adventures Under Ground three years later. Its curious effect of half-dream, half-nightmare instantly captured the imagination of both children and adults, and it has been a favorite ever since. Alice’s adventures down the rabbit hole, in particular, the strange characters she meets there – the constantly grinning Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts – have become world-famous, as have many of Carroll’s verses. Retold here in abridged form for children to read as well as to enjoy as a bedtime story.
This beautiful hardback edition includes more than 70 stunning illustrations by Robert Ingpen, each reflecting his unique style and extraordinary imagination in visualizing this enchanting story.
