Overview

Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

When Alice tumbles down, down, down a rabbit-hole one hot summer's afternoon in pursuit of a White Rabbit she finds herself in Wonderland. And there begin the fantastical adventures that will see her experiencing extraordinary changes in size, swimming in a pool of her own tears and attending the very maddest of tea parties. For Wonderland is no ordinary place and the characters that populate it are quite unlike anybody young Alice has ever met before. In this imaginary land she encounters the savagely violent Queen, the Lachrymose Mock Turtle, the laconic Cheshire Cat and the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, each as surprising and outlandish as the next. Alice's adventures have made her the stuff of legend, the child heroine par excellence, and ensured that Carroll's book is the best loved and most widely read in children's literature.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, celebrated under his pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was born in 1832, the third in a large and talented family of eleven children. His fascination with word games, puzzles and writing was evident from an early age. He was educated at Rugby School and then Christ Church, Oxford, where he was later appointed lecturer in mathematics and subsequently spent the rest of his life. Alongside his academic life he pursued a career both as a writer and an accomplished amateur photographer. His most famous works are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), its sequel Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There (1871) and The Hunting of the Snark (1876). He died, unmarried, in 1898.

Words can hardly describe how I feel about this book. It transports you to another time and place... one is able to suspend all disbelief and experience Wonderland as Alice experiences it- without any doubt or confusion. Alice in Wonderland is magical, charming, and inspiring for children and adults alike.

I love the book. I don't know about that person who keeps writing bad reviews about the book but I love it!

This book is hard to understand at first and yes you might have to read some things over, but once you get use to it this book is wonderful. It's pure nonsense and I loved every minute of it. I'm fourteen and I understand Lewis Caroll perfectly, even read Through The Looking Class. This book is splendid and one of my favorites. WAY better than Twilight.

I bought this thinking it was the real book. Good if you can read shorthand which i can't and it doesn't read like a real book. Hope this helps!

I really love this book. I try to read it every year. Whimsical and entertaining. By the way, the one star reviews are obviously for another version of this book, as this version is great. I think B&N puts all the reviews for every version of the book under the same book, for some reason. This version is clean and nice.

All you can see is the occasional drawings throughout. The rest is basically wingdings.

Alice in wonderland is a whimsical world that exsist in Alice's mind. I used to watch the old vedio as a kid at my great grandma's house, and really didn't understand it. But once i read the book a while back i feel in luv with this book. So i luv this book but i recomend that tweens and up should read this to understand this fantastic book.
