Description

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

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. Its curious effect of half-dream, half-nightmare instantly captured the imagination of both children and adults, and it has been a favourite ever since. Alice’s adventures down the rabbit hole, in particular the strange characters she meets there – the constantly grinning Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts – have become world-famous.

This edition brings together the complete and unabridged text with more than 70 stunning illustrations by Robert Ingpen, each reflecting his unique style and extraordinary imagination in visualising this enchanting story.
