Editorial Reviews

Review

"* "An 'Alice' for the new millennium, this book is a triumph of design and rare quality. Helen Oxenbury perfectly captures the dreamlike qualities suggested in Carroll's famous classic." The Guardian * "Fresh, modern and comic." The Sunday Times" --The Sunday Times

About the Author

Considered a master of the genre of literary nonsense, he is renowned for his ingenious wordplay and sense of logic, and his highly original vision.

So, as part of my preparation for the Tim Burton movie--yup, I know I'm two years too late--I decided to read AIW and watch the 1951 Disney movie. For a buck this one here looked like a nice option. Unfortunately, not so. Two entire chapters are eliminated, The Mock Turtle's Story and The Lobster Quadrille. As if that isn't a big enough problem, the chapters that are present are massively trimmed. For example, Who Stole the Tarts is not even a quarter of the original text. Not sure why it's done that way. Is it supposed to be Alice in Wonderland in 10 Minutes or something along those lines? I don't see anything of that sort mentioned anywhere. There are illustrations in the book, but these are bastardized version of John Tenniel's. Apart from the regular illustrations there are full page illustrations that appear to be inserted at random. The Trial of the Knave one is inserted in A Mad Tea-Party and so on; it's all out of order.

Lewis Carroll end the book with these daydreams from Alice's sister:
Lastly, she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her childhood; and how she would gather about her other little children and make their eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even with the dream of Wonderland of long ago.

I'm thankful to the publisher for putting this out for a buck, but with a little bit more effort you can make gather about you "other little children and make their eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even with the dream of Wonderland of long ago." And perhaps brighten the eyes of a few grown ups too!

This was like an abridged version of the story. I wish I would've realized that - be sure to get Alice's Adventures in Wonderland instead.

There is nothing I could say about this book that everyone has probably known since childhood. The reason I wanted to write this review was to say that this particular version is absolutely beautiful. It doesn't look like an ebook, it looks like an expensive hardback book. Also, each page is formatted to exactly fit on the Kindle screen ... complete with a decorative border around each page. And it was free! Don't miss getting this book, especially if there are children in your house. AWESOME!!!!!

I picked up this new e book version of the classic Victorian tale on a whim. What I did not expect was a totally new perspective on this classic fantasy tale.

As a child I read the book, but did not much care for it. After doing a bit of research I discovered that Carroll (real name Charles Dodgson) told this story to a friend and his three young children while enjoying a boat ride. The children were so pleased with it that he decided to write it down and commission John Tenniel to do the drawings for the publication. Dodgson was a mathematician intrigued by the math and science that was being applied daily to inventions as England was entering the Industrial Revolution. His other interests included reading, poetry and photography.

Alice was modeled on one of these three girls. She is curious and polite. The character in the story displays fear and courage, resilience, and the ability to adapt to change. The anthropomorphic characters she encounters are a strange bunch; some of them like the Cheshire Cat and the Caterpillar appear to teach her, while others like the Mock Turtle and the Flamingo appear sillier and more frivolous. A careful reading will produce numerous evidences of mathematical reasoning and the importance that the author attaches to mathematics in the world around us; yet the reader’s main focus centers on the trials and tribulations that Alice must face from the time she falls into the rabbit hole: how she must swim herself across the sea of tears to face the challenges that many creatures present, to her ultimate escape from the nefarious Queen of Hearts at the trial, which almost results in her losing her head! Alice learns to think on her feet quickly in this coming of age tale.

I don't know what took me so long to read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I think it's because I'm not a big fan of Disney's animated Alice, and that kind of put me off from reading the actual story. I also have to admit the unsavory rumors about Lewis Carroll also steered me away from reading this one.
I put that aside and decided to finally read this classic. I found Alice's Adventures in Wonderland a delight. As soon as Alice falls down the rabbit hole, I found myself swept into Carroll's lyrical and strange storytelling and didn't stop reading until the end.
Alice herself is the one who captivates the reader.

"For, you see, so many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible."

After falling down the rabbit hole, Alice encounters some strange characters, the Chesire Cat, the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter among them. The encounters Alice has with these characters are funny and strange and I enjoyed the silliness of the story. Interestingly enough, this genre is referred to as literary nonsense.
Lewis Carroll was a mathematician and that is evident as you read this story.
"Let me see: four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven is - oh dear! I shall never get to twenty at that rate! "

My favorite chapter was 5, Advice from a Caterpillar.
I found it amusing that Alice comes upon a caterpillar sitting on a mushroom, smoking a hookah no less.

"The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice.
'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar."

I enjoyed this fairy tale and will be reading Through the Looking Glass next.
