Alice in Wonderland
Containing both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass this new edition brings together the classic tales to offer the full story of Alice, the Red Queen, the mad Hatter and the incredible cast of characters created by mathematician and king of nonsense verse Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Beloved characters whirl through a world of talking creatures, disappearing cats and madcap peculiarity told with swift economy by a writer whose influence on modern fantasy is often overlooked. Much filmed (including Tim Burton's award winning Alice in Wonderland), animated and republished Dodgson's work is a wildly entertaining ride for children, but packed with symbols and satire for the adult reader too.
