I received this an The Chronicles of Narnia for Christmas, which is fabulous since I asked for them. I can't wait to add some of the other books to my collection. I was surprised when I opened Alice in Wonderland, and had to investigate online.. it seems as though my copy is an anomaly because the entire inside of my book is upside down. I thought maybe it was supposed to be this way since it's Alice in Wonderland, but I guess it has nothing to do with the rabbit hole haha.

I bought this for my 9 year old daughter and she absolutely loves it. She hasn't even read the main stories yet; she is too busy reading the rest of the goodies. My husband is even reading it when he is allowed to borrow it. The book cover is gorgeous and is a keeper to be passed down to future generations.

This is the first Barnes &amp; Noble Leatherbound Classic book I have read, and judging by only the cover, it's absolutely astounding. Cute and pink with wonderful artwork, and pages dipped in gold which gives the pages that ''old'' vintage feeling! The first two parts of the book is of course the Alice books - I finished those in a day each, it was wonderful reliving my childhood, and also learning more about the books, as the Disney and Tim Burton movies are just mere interpretations. I loved the books even more! The next two parts are the Sylvie and Bruno books, which were wonderful and cute! Really recommend those if you like the Alice books, but are heavier to read as they are longer and with no pictures &ndash; So I wouldn&rsquo;t really recommend it to a younger child. But the fun doesn&rsquo;t end here! There&rsquo;s LOTS of other goodies to discover. Verses, puzzles, poems, stories, and a big &lsquo;&rsquo;miscellany&rsquo;&rsquo; chunk with lots of fun stuff! There are even mathematical problems and equations or those who are smart enough! Riddles and guides are also included. So if you&rsquo;re a fan of Mr. Lewis Carroll and Victorian literature, get this book at once! At only $18, it&rsquo;s even worth it if you just buy it just to read the Alice stories! Here in Norway they sell some books from the Leatherbound Classic series for a whopping $41.50 each! I bought this and another book from the series, and with shipping the total was only $54.50! So I will continue ordering from Barnes &amp; Noble in the future! Hope to collect all the books one day. What are you waiting for? Click Add to Bag now!! Happy reading! - Caroline Carnivorous

This book cover is the best beautiful among this classic leather- series. It's really gorgeous. But when I got this book, I found that illustrations can be only found in first story, Alice's adventures in wonderland. I'm a little dissapointed. And my book was sent with slight damage. I think wrapping was careless. (I'm not in US, I ordered the item by international airmail.)

This is the first of the leatherbound volumes by B&N that I've purchased and judging by this one, probably not the last! I have begun to collect Alice in Wonderland editions and I purchased this one because it offered so much more of Carroll's work as well as the original Tenniel illustrations. But the format of the text is also very appealing (font is not too small or too large, margins are generous all around) and the cover design, over and beyond the sumptously stamped pink leather cover,is just gorgeously conceived. Gilt edges, bound bookmark, extensive range of author's work and you have one terrific buy at under $20--hard to believe. My one hope is that the paper, which is ivory in color and a good weight, is acid free and will stand the test of time. Don't mean to be greedy, but I'd like to keep this one forever. Not all the leatherbound volumes I've looked at in this series appear to have paper of the same quality.

The novel is composed of twelve brief chapters; it can be read in an afternoon. Each of the brief chapters, furthermore, is divided into small, individual, almost isolated episodes. And the story begins with Alice and her sister sitting on the bank of a river reading a book which has no pictures or dialogue in it. &quot; . . . and what is the use of a book,&quot; thought Alice, &quot;without pictures or conversations?&quot; Thus, we find many pictures and read much dialogue (although very little of it makes sense) in this novel. After introducing us to one of the creatures in Wonderland, the Gryphon, for instance, the narrator tells us, &quot;If you don't know what a Gryphon is, look at the picture.&quot; As noted earlier, Wonderland is filled with strange animals, and Alice's encounters with these creatures, all of whom engage her in conversations, confuse her even more whenever she meets yet another inhabitant of this strange country.

it's way more than I expected.

Let&rsquo;s be real, this book will take forever to finish. Well, at least for me it will. I really enjoyed the story of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and am still working my way through the other fabulous tales. Honestly, the main reason I bought this book is because the book cover is just so spellbinding. When we made eye contact, I was starstruck by its beauty and, out of no where, found myself paying for it to become mine. It really does have great stories but if you don't finish it, it definitely is a lovely addition to your book collection.

Phantasmagoria is included in this compilation. I checked the table of contents for you.

This is an absolutely gorgeous book. The books of this series are all professionally bound and illustrated with either the original artwork or something equally as thrilling. The pink cover of the Alice in Wonderland edition is a nice refreshing change from the droll brown, blacks or blues of a traditionally bound book. Definitely worth giving as a gift or keeping as a collectors item as this will last generations. Absolutely worth the exceptional price as I would have been willing to pay double what they asked (though, at the price offered, I was able to buy both quantity AND quality...). This book (and all of the leatherbound classic series books) is certainly a treasure.

A great book for young and old alike. I love the whole look of the book starting with the thick leather bound hard cover and beautiful drawing and design on the front cover. Along with the two books of Alice in Wonderland, this edition also has, Sylvie and Bruno, Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, The Hunting of the Snark, Phantasmagoria, College Rhymes and Notes by an Oxford Chiel, Three Sunsets and Other Poems and much much more. Beautiful illustrations of John Tenniel have been retained in this edition. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves books as much as I do.

I admit I didn't like the stylised version of Alice on the cover but it's grown on me. And the shade of pink is beautiful. It definitely stands out in the collection.

Love the leatherbound classics, but I do have a question.  Was this one originally published with a different cover?

Amazing stories and gorgeous cover! I love how this B&amp;N edition has two of the Alice stories in one book. One of them is the most well know story, 'Alice's Adventure in Wonderland' and the other one is 'Through the Looking Glass&quot;. In 'Alice's Adventure in Wonderland', Alice, the protagonist, falls in to the Wonderland through the rabbit whole and explore the absurd place while meeting various characters such as mad hatter, red queen and white rabbit.  On the other hand, in 'Through the Looking-Glass', Alice enter the Looking glass world through a mirror. The story is largely structured upon chess game and Alice play as one of the pawns for the White Queen. Unlike 'Adventures in Wonderland', 'Through the Looking-Glass' is much more tightly structured. It has interwoven rules from chess that are very clever and interesting. It would be much fun to read if you know how to play chess. I love the creativity of the stories and whimsical characters. They are nonsensical yet logical which I think is the most charming part of Alice stories. This book can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of age.

I am collecting all of the Barnes and Noble leatherbound books. I think they are absolutely amazing!

This is soooo beautiful! One of the most beautiful books I've ever purchased. It's so very Alice in Wonderland and I love it. I will say that the commenter who mentioned the gold flakes isn't far off. The gold flakes for this book do seem to rub off, but none of other other leatherbound classics from this series of b&amp;n books I've bought do that. I'm not really worried about it health-wise like that person, but I think it's worth mentioning anyways.
