Overview

Lewis Caroll's two enduring works about the curious daydreamer, Alice is reprinted accompanied with Milo Winter's beautifully imaginative and humourous colour plates and line drawings. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. About the Author: Charles Dodgson (1832-1898) is best known by his pseudonym Lewis Carroll. A polymath who is arguably best known as an author, but who also worked as a mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer, his most famous works are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and the sequel Alice Through the Looking-Glass. Dodgson was a prolific writer who contributed children's stories, mathematical theses and political pamphlets to a variety of magazines. About the Illustrator: Milo Winter (1888-1956) was an American illustrator of the Golden Age, who illustrated dozens of books throughout the 1910s, 20s and 30s and served as the art director of the Childcraft series. He was a master of animal drawings, which he could render anatomically accurate to the last detail.
