Overview

The adventures of Alice are newly abridged for younger readers and illustrated by Hans Christian Andersen-award winner Robert Ingpen

The adventures of Alice are newly abridged for younger readers and illustrated by Hans Christian Andersen-award winner Robert Ingpen 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. Alice's adventures down the rabbit hole, in particular the strange characters she meets there—the grinning Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts—have become world-famous. This edition brings together an abridged text for younger readers with more than 20 stunning illustrations, each reflecting his unique style and extraordinary imagination.

Reviews

"Lewis Carroll, we could say, created the whole of children's literature with these wonderful stories. Placing a child at the centre of a narrative that was entirely free of instruction, entirely devoted to delight, was a stroke of genius. The Alices are the greatest nonsense ever written, and far greater, in my view, than most sense." —Philip Pullman
