The fascinating adventures of this timeless little girl as she plunges down the rabbit-hole, shrinks and grows, meets the pack of cards and the chess pieces -- should be read regularly by all ages for their totally original fantasy, their humor, and their charm.

Book Short Summary:

"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" – Alice, a girl of seven years, is feeling bored and drowsy while sitting on the riverbank with her elder sister. She then notices a talking, clothed White Rabbit with a pocket watch run past. She follows it down a rabbit hole when suddenly she falls a long way to a curious hall with many locked doors of all sizes and gets stuck in a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course, structure, characters, and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre. "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There" – Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. There she finds that, just like a reflection, everything is reversed, including logic (running helps you remain stationary, walking away from something brings you towards it, chessmen are alive, nursery rhyme characters exist, etc).

Book Short Summary:

Young and imaginative Alice follows a hasty rabbit underground and comes face-to-face with some of the strangest adventures and most fantastic characters in all literature.... NOW WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ERIN MORGENSTERN, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE STARLESS SEA AND THE NIGHT CIRCUS The mad Hatter, the diabolical Queen of Hearts, the grinning Cheshire-Cat, Tweedledum, and Tweedledee could only have come from that master of sublime nonsense Lewis Carroll. In this brilliant satire of rigid Victorian society, Carroll also illuminates the fears, anxieties, and complexities of growing up. He was one of the few adult writers to enter successfully the children’s world of make-believe, where the impossible becomes possible, the unreal, real, and where the heights of adventure are limited only by the depths of imagination.

Book Short Summary:

Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass have captivated the imagination of adults and children alike since they first appeared more than a hundred years ago. Since that time many artists have attempted to capture their dreamlike combination of impossible events, precise detail and weird logic. Mervyn Peake is one of the few to have succeeded. Famed worldwide for his Gormenghast trilogy, Mervyn Peake was also an illustrator of rare and wondrous talent, whose editions of Treasure Island and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner are universally admired. In the 1940s he was commissioned to produce a set of 70 pen-and-ink drawings to accompany Lewis Carroll's two classics, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. They are among his best work as an illustrator. Unavailable in any edition since 1978, these extraordinary illustrations, many of which were drawn on poor quality wartime paper, have been restored to their former clarity and crispness by a combination of old-fashioned craft and the latest computer technology. They are now meticulously reproduced, for the first time, as they were meant to be seen. This exquisite two-volume set is the first edition to do justice to two great English eccentrics.

Book Short Summary:

First published in 1865, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland began as a story told to Alice Liddell and her two sisters on a boating trip in July 1862. The novel follows Alice down a rabbit-hole and into a world of strange and wonderful characters who constantly turn everything upside down with their mind-boggling logic, word play, and fantastic parodies. The sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1871, and was both a popular success and appreciated by critics for its wit and philosophical sophistication. Along with both novels and the original Tenniel illustrations, this edition includes Carroll’s earlier story Alice’s Adventures Under Ground. Appendices include Carroll’s photographs of the Liddell sisters, materials on film and television adaptations, selections from other “looking-glass” books for children, and “The Wasp in a Wig,” an originally deleted section of Through the Looking-Glass.

This Top Five Classics illustrated edition of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland includes: • The complete texts of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass • John Tenniel’s 92 original illustrations, including 35 in color • The Hunting of the Snark, with Henry Holiday’s 10 original illustrations • An informative introduction, author bio, and helpful notes Originally written and hand-drawn from 1862 to 1864 by Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson) for 10-year-old Alice Liddell, the daughter of Dodgson’s Oxford college dean, the manuscript “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground” would become, with the help of John Tenniel’s beautiful and humorous illustrations, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, published by Macmillan in 1865 in Britain and the U.S. The book, at turns silly and satiric, gentle and wild, would quickly become beloved around the world by children and adults, and spawn the classic sequel Through the Looking-Glass (1871) and the immortal nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark (1876). The author, a shy mathematics professor called Charles Dodgson, would become internationally famous and ever after remembered by his pen name, Lewis Carroll. The books have never gone out of print and over nearly two centuries have spawned countless offshoots and adaptations—books, artwork, plays, games, and movies. This Top Five Classics edition of the fully illustrated Alice books presents the stories the way they were meant to be enjoyed.

Book Short Summary:

Emerging in several different versions during the author's lifetime, Lewis Carroll's Alice novels have a publishing history almost as magical and mysterious as the stories themselves. Zoe Jaques and Eugene Giddens offer a detailed and nuanced account of the initial publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and investigate how their subsequent transformations through print, illustration, film, song, music videos, and even stamp-cases and biscuit tins affected the reception of these childhood favourites. The authors consider issues related to the orality of the original tale and its impact on subsequent transmission, the differences between the manuscripts and printed editions, and the politics of writing and publishing for children in the 1860s. In addition, they take account of Carroll's own responses to the books' popularity, including his writing of major adaptations and a significant body of meta-textual commentary, and his reactions to the staging of Alice in Wonderland. Attentive to the child reader, how changing notions of childhood identity and needs affected shifting narratives of the story, and the representation of the child's body by various illustrators, the authors also make a significant contribution to childhood studies.

Book Short Summary:

Scurry down the rabbit hole and step through the looking glass with this compilation of works from Lewis Carroll. Don’t be late--it’s a very important date! Witty, whimsical, and often nonsensical, the fiction of Lewis Carroll has been popular with both children and adults for over 150 years. Canterbury Classics's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland takes readers on a trip down the rabbit hole in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, where height is dynamic, animals talk, and the best solutions to drying off are a dry lecture on William the Conqueror and a Caucus Race in which everyone runs in circles and there is no clear winner. Through the Looking Glass begins the adventure anew when Alice steps through a mirror into another magical world where she can instantly be made queen if she can only get to the other side of the colossal chessboard. Complete with the original drawings by John Tenniel, this edition is a steal for new readers and Carroll fans alike.

Book Short Summary:

This special edition brings together both of Lewis Carroll’s marvelous tales set in the whimsical world beyond the looking glass and down the rabbit hole. Caroll’s first novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, finds Alice stuck in Wonderland, surrounded by curious creatures and with no idea of how to return home. With questionable aid from the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts, Alice eventually finds her way back home. But the enigmatic Alice can’t stay away for long, and she finds herself back in Wonderland in the sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. Most adaptations of Lewis Carroll’s beloved books have combined the stories featured in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, including the 1951 animated Disney film Alice in Wonderland. More recently, director Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010), starring Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp, used Wonderland lore to create an entirely new storyline about Alice and many of the other characters made famous by Carroll’s novels. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

Book Short Summary:

This 1872 sequel to Lewis Carroll's beloved Alice's Adventures in Wonderland finds the inquisitive heroine in a fantastic land where everything is reversed. Looking-glass land, a topsy-turvy world lurking just behind the mirror over Alice's mantel, is a fantastic realm of live chessmen, madcap kings and queens, strange mythological creatures, a garden of talking flowers, and rude insects. Brooks and hedges divide the lush greenery of looking-glass land into a chessboard, where Alice becomes a pawn in a bizarre game of chess involving Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn, the White Knight, and other nursery-rhyme figures. Promised a crown when she reaches the eighth square, Alice perseveres through a surreal landscape of characters who pelt her with riddles as well as humorous semantic quibbles, and regale her with memorable poetry, including the oft-quoted "Jabberwocky." This handsome and inexpensive edition of the childhood classic features the original illustrations by Sir John Tenniel.

The themes and settings of Through the Looking-Glass make it a kind of mirror image of Wonderland: the first book begins outdoors, in the warm month of May (4 May),[a] uses frequent changes in size as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of playing cards; the second opens indoors on a snowy, wintry night exactly six months later, on 4 November (the day before Guy Fawkes Night),uses frequent changes in time and spatial directions as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of chess. In it, there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on.

Book Short Summary:

One and a half centuries: that's how long ago Lewis Carroll wrote Alice in Wonderland, a book which we all love to read and re-read. Since the nineteenth century until today, it has intrigued, enchanted and moved readers of all ages. It tells the tale of Alice, the little girl who falls down the rabbit hole into a place of fantasy, inhabited by weird creatures who resemble human beings. A nonsensical universe, filled with an absurd logic that feels like a dream world, in a narrative marked by parodies of children's poems popular in England at that time. There Alice goes on weird and absurd adventures, faces uncommon situations, meets extravagant beings, is asked enigmatic and illogical questions, grows and shrinks in size... And lives through it all unfazed and with a lot of curiosity.

Book Short Summary:

STICKY fingers is all about revealing the intersection of art and language, and no book of literature blends the two quite like Lewis Carroll’s beloved children’s classic, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Follow Alice ‘down the rabbit hole’ as she encounters a hookah-smoking caterpillar, a grinning feline, anthropomorphic playing cards, and a cast of other weird and wonderful characters. This edition celebrates Alice’s spectacular adventures as well as her equally spectacular artistic heritage with a uniquely modern twist: over one hundred whimsical, eccentric and darkly humorous wood engravings by the ‘Mad Hatter’ of Canadian graphic arts himself, the award-winning George A. Walker. Walker’s engravings are as playful, surreal and downright provocative, offering a new and darkly energetic interpretation of Carroll’s masterpiece. An introduction by esteemed author, anthologist and critic Alberto Manguel provides context for the tale, its language, and its unforgettable imagery.

Book Short Summary:

Chris Riddell's brilliant full-colour illustrated Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There is a gorgeous edition of this much-loved and favourite classic. A perfect gift for families, children and all fans. First published by Macmillan more than 150 years ago, Lewis Carroll’s iconic stories about Alice have been loved and enjoyed by generations of children the world over. Curious Alice's second story takes her through the looking-glass to a place even stranger than the Wonderland of her first adventure. Caught up in the great looking-glass chess game she sets off across the chequerboard landscape to become a queen on the final square. It isn't as easy as she expects: at every step she is hindered by unusual, funny and nonsense characters who crop up, such as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and Humpty Dumpty. Some of them insist on reciting poems to her and these poems, such as The Walrus and The Carpenter and Jabberwocky, are now as famous as the Alice stories themselves. This edition presents Lewis Carroll's complete text, with illustrations from Costa Award- and Kate Greenaway Medal-winner Chris Riddell. Published 200 years after the birth of Alice’s first illustrator, Sir John Tenniel, also an eminent political cartoonist of his time, Chris Riddell's illustrations set a new bar in terms of excellence, with his unique, rich and evocative interpretation of Carroll's world.
