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

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll, published Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in 1865 and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, in 1871. 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.

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.

A great book and lovely edition - the illustrations are classic and whimsical. (Looks like somebody else tried to knock it off but this version is the real one!)

My 12 year old grand daughter was interested in Alice in Wonderland because of the up-coming move with J. Depp. I suggested she read the book and Alice through the Looking Glass too. When I was making my selections, I decided on this one because it had the original illustrations. When she received them she called me right away and said how beautiful they were. I am so pleased to have such a variety of quality merchandise to choose from at amazon. These books are classic and a keepsake forever. Lily's Oma.

This is a must read book if one is going to study literature, or one wants to read and understand classic literature. References to Alice AND Wonderland are all over the literary world. So many different observations can be taken from the book. It is a fun book, but it is almost a book of instructions for life. Is life a Wonder Land for YOU? Want it to be? Enjoy the Journey with Alice, and take your own road to happiness ~

I think it deserves 4 stars because it is a very imaginative classic with a hint of reality. I honestly think that everyone should read it, kids and adults. I want every bookstore to carry it because it's an awesome classic!

It is ok. It is hard to understand the meaning behind the story. Cute children's story, but has a deeper meaning than appears on the surface.
