Book Description

About this Edition:

Doma House Publishing presents to you this version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which has been designed and formatted specifically for your Amazon Kindle. Unlike other e-book editions, the text and chapters are perfectly set up to match the layout and feel of a physical copy, rather then being haphazardly thrown together for a quick release.

This edition also includes the brilliant visual illustrations by Sir John Tenniel, which are commonly left out of other Kindle productions, and a brief biography on the life of Lewis Carroll. Also, you can easily navigate through chapters using the linked Table of Contents found at the start of this edition.

Thank you for choosing Doma House Publishing. We look forward to creating many more affordable Kindle Classics for you to enjoy.

About the story:

Source of legend and lyric, reference and conjecture, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is for most children pure pleasure in prose. While adults try to decipher Lewis Carroll's putative use of complex mathematical codes in the text, or debate his alleged use of opium, young readers simply dive with Alice through the rabbit hole, pursuing "The dream-child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new." There they encounter the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, among a multitude of other characters--extinct, fantastical, and commonplace creatures. Alice journeys through this Wonderland, trying to fathom the meaning of her strange experiences. But they turn out to be "curiouser and curiouser," seemingly without moral or sense.

For more than 130 years, children have reveled in the delightfully non-moralistic, non-educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn, Alice's new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the "regular course" in school: Reeling, Writhing, and branches of Arithmetic-Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel's illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll's instincts were good; the masterful drawings are inextricably tied to the well-loved story. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

wonderland revisited Spanish illustrator Angel Dominguez fills an unabridged edition of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with 75 watercolors, most of them closely packed with lush oversized flowers, strange creatures and winding vines reminiscent of Art Nouveau-often against bizarrely serene pastoral backgrounds. Exotic birds and animals, such as peacocks and zebras, wander through the picture frame. While the illustrations bring out the text's absurdity, pretty-in-pink Alice provides a counterpoint not of normalcy but of sentimentality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best I Could Find to Give a Nine Year Old as a Gift July 26, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I knew what I wanted to give a nine-year old for her upcoming birthday, "Alice In Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass", just as an uncle had gifted me the books when I had been that age. I went onto three book-selling websites and searched for "Alice in Wonderland". I was very suprised at the number of options available. They ranged from expensive volumes with the original title, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", to abridged books with colorful modern illustrations.

I didn't have anything against any of them, except they weren't what I was looking for. I wanted child-friendly hardback books with original Tenniel illustrations, and I definitely wanted no abridgement. As novels go, these are not lengthy books anyway. And the puzzles and language are so wonderful, I wanted her to have the full story. These Lewis Carroll books are fantasy, but they are not simple or dumbed down!

"Take some more tea," the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
"I've had nothing yet," Alice replied in an offended tone, "so I can't take some more."
"You mean you can't take LESS", said the Hatter: "it's very easy to take MORE than nothing."

I finally selected two companion hardback books from amazon, and I am very pleased with them. Both were published in 2007 by Digital Scanning, Inc. (DSI). They are about 10 high by 7 wide, kind of a cross between a novel and a picture book. The covers have wonderful colorized Tenniel illustrations. The inside pages have the original black & white Tenniel illustrations, described as "from John Tenniel" or "after John Tenniel".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Kindle Version September 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review is strictly for the Kindle version of this classic story by Lewis Carroll.

I confess almost all books I buy for the Kindle are works for which I already have a paper copy, sometimes two, if it is a translation. I buy the Kindle editions in order to easily search for particular quotes and passages. These passages I commonly paste into writings I do on the Bible, and Lewis Carroll's works are some of my favorites, behind Shakespeare and Plato.

I mention all this because unlike many other books, this edition is actually better for reading than it is for the purpose I just mentioned, because it does not have the pagination which would enable one to refer back to the original copy. In most Kindle books, you can locate the printed page number by doing a query on a word on that page. That's a bit hokey, but that's what you have to do. That trick does not work on this edition. Rules for scholarly source citations have not yet caught up with editions which are formatted especially for the Kindle.

But for reading, the Kindle converters got two things very right. First, the edition has all of Sir John Tenniel's drawings. They didn't even spoil them by having them colorized, even thoughh the thumbnail picture in the Amazon header is colored. Second, formatting for poetry loses absolutely nothing as the size of the page or font is changed. This is especially important for that unique example of "concrete poetry", "A Mouse's Tale" which appears in chapter III.

2.0 out of 5 stars I wish I could rate this higher December 1, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I don't know what to say about this book other than disappointing. First off is the cover; rather than a nice hardcover for my home library, it has a glossy schoolbook hardcover with advertising text on the back. Now I won't knock it for this, if you bought it for a classroom you might be very pleased with this cover; I was not.

My main problems with the book involve the publishers choice of reproduction method. An original print of some earlier (perhaps even original) edition have been simply scanned and reproduced in this edition. I doubt they used an original print to reproduce because Tenniel's drawings seem a bit heavy and splotchy, like a photocopied mimeograph. Even more importantly, the text looks AWFUL. How you could even waste your time putting a book like this together without resetting the type is beyond me, but I guess it isn't much time if you just scan something in and hit print. Also, and I can't believe I'm even typing this, but the ink they used smells horrible - something like cheap newsprint. These are not complaints that I have ever had about a book before.

I am so let down, I spent more than $20 on this book, thinking my daughter would have it forever, and now I'm just going to give it away and buy a different version. I'm just happy that I decided to wait before I bought the companion "Through the Looking Glass" (Which incidentally doesn't even have an illustration from the right book on it's cover).

I give this 2 stars instead of 1 because I can see it being a passable classroom edition, but do yourself a favor and don't buy it for a child you love.

3.0 out of 5 stars Photocopy of Alice January 2, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was suprised when I recived this book and discovered that the pages were just photocopies of someone's book. The paper is stark white and the pages just copies, dust and all. I bought this because of the vintage quality but am disappointed that it is a cheap copy. They could have at least printed it on tan paper.

Clever, absurd, surreal and wonderful. So much more than a children's story, this is an adventure of the mind for all who love games and word-play.
