About the Author

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was a man of diverse interests - in mathematics, logic, photgraphy, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. He was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games, and charming letters.

As all Carroll admirers know, his book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.

The Alice books are but one example of his wide ranging authorship. The Hunting of the Snark, a classic nonsense epic (1876) and Euclid and His Modern Rivals, a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue today's students. Sylvie and Bruno, published toward the end of his life contains startling ideas including an 1889 description of weightlessness.

The humor, sparkling wit and genius of this Victorian Englishman have lasted for more than a century. His books are among the most quoted works in the English language, and his influence (with that of his illustrator, Sir John Tenniel) can be seen everywhere, from the world of advertising to that of atomic physics.

I bought this book because I loved Kusama's work. If Kusama is what you are after, buy this book. But if you want illustrations to go with the story, buy  another version, preferably with John Tenniel's pictures. Kusama's colorful repetitive dots are lovely and fascinating, but they don't exactly support the flow of the story.

I gave it to my eight year old grand daughter for Christmas. She loved the art work and the story. A must for a child's library.

I'm always hunting for new versions/illustrations of Alice in Wonderland and this was a very unique book to pick up. I was unfamiliar with Yayoi Kusama's artwork before looking through this, and her artistic take on Alice in Wonderland is something I've never seen before. I get a slight psychedelic mixed with modern art feel from it. It is a special edition from Penguin Classics bound in canvas. The bright binding with polka dots definitely caught my attention in the bookstore. I would recommend this more for adults and Alice fans looking for something new for their collection.
