About the Author
Sir John Tensile (18201914) was a British illustrator, graphic humourist and political cartoonist whose work was prominent during the second half of England’s 19th century. Tenniel is considered important to the study of that period’s social, literary, and art histories. He was knighted by Queen Victoria for his artistic achievements in 1893.
Tenniel is most noted for two major accomplishments: he was the principal political cartoonist for England’s Punch magazine for over 50 years, and he was the artist who illustrated Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.

Top Customer Reviews
Alice in Wonderland is not a drug trip, an overblown political satire, or a bitter remark upon society. While some of the author's views come through in the text, and the reader is welcome to interpret as he or she sees fit, there is nothing wrong with reading the story simply as a fantastic journey into a childlike, imaginative mind living through a dreamscape of wild possibilities and cultural ignorance. A story written to appeal to a child with a child's grasp of politics and high society need not be criticised; it need only be enjoyed.
The reason this five star book gets less stars occasionally is not because of its contents or purpose; it is because of either being mistaken for a kids book, in which case one wonders why it is forced on kids, or it is so dated that even the reader thinks it is gobbledygook.
You will find the book full of references to items of the time and play on words of the time.
If you fall into either of these categories then you need to first purchase "The Annotated Alice: The Definitive Edition"; this will clear this understandable confusion. Be aware that every sentience is a play on words for a jab at the culture of that time.
I will not go through the story, as that is why you are buying this book. However I will say that it is a classic and should be part of everyone's cultural education.
When you make it through this book and enjoy it the next challenge should be "Alice's Abenteuer Im Wunderland” German Translation.
If you are also interested in sci-fi then try to get a copy of "Mimsy Were the Borogoves" by Henry Kuttner.
Best of Henry Kuttner "Mimsy Were the Borogoves"
Stupendous pop-up scenes, some of fiendish complexity in the engineering, and what looks like a complete text of Alice in Wonderland in the leaflets bound in as sidebars (also with pop-ups in most cases).
The scene with "big" Alice in the house was a little nerve-wracking when it came time to fold it back into the book as the complex roof looked at one point as though it would crease, but it popped back into place with some gentle page closing. In fact, all the pages required careful closing up to ensure the complicated fold-out parts would fold-in again without getting trapped and damaged. A child would have to be warned about the danger, but would probably not "get it".
There are six (I believe) major fold-out pop-up scenes, and I don't know how many small vignettes in the sidebar leaflets. Lots to discover in each, too.
