The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2015 - Julia Eccleshare's Book of the Month, July 2015 The classic stories of Alice and her journeys into Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are celebrating 150 years in print. These wonderfully imaginative stories have influenced children’s books ever since they were first published. In fact, it is often said that they were the origins of all the children’s literature that has followed as stories for children published before that were always moral tales. This handsome and long-lasting edition beautifully printed in a big type face which also includes Sir John Tenniel’s original illustrations in colour is a perfect way of introducing Alice and all the wonderful characters who feature in her adventures such as the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen and many more. In his eloquent introduction Philip Pullman expresses the view that the Alice stories have lasted so long ‘for the simple reason that they are full of delight’. These are stories that every child will enjoy getting to know because, as Philip Pullman says, “ They are as fresh and clever and funny today as they were a hundred and fifty years ago.” ~ Julia Eccleshare
The Complete Alice Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll's Alice has been enchanting children for 150 years. Curious Alice, the bossy White Rabbit, the formidable Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter are among the best loved, most iconic literary creations of all time. Macmillan was the original publisher of Alice in 1865 and is proud to remain true to the vision of its creators.
This stunning anniversary treasury reproduces every word of Carroll's masterpiece and its equally famous sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. The dreamlike illustrations, colour versions of Sir John Tenniel's originals, were produced in 1911 by celebrated artist Harry Theaker, under the direction of Tenniel himself, and the series completed by contemporary watercolourist Diz Wallis. Curiouser and curiouser! Lively and authoritative non-fiction content draws on Macmillan's rich historical archive to tell the real-life story of how Alice was written and published, making this a perfect gift for fans of Alice young and old.
