The Lovereading4Kids comment
The classic story of how Alice falls down the rabbit hole and enters a strange topsy-turvy world in which nothing it quite what it seems to be is given a dreamy, soft focus in Robert Ingpen’s illustrations. What Alice finds when she meets the caterpillar, attends a mad tea party, takes part in the trial to find out who stole the tarts and much more is a remarkable piece of make-believe.
From Philip Pullman: "Indispensable. The great classic beginning of English children's literature."

's series of children's classics with pictures by Robert Ingpen. They include The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Christmas Carol, Kipling's Just So Stories, The Owl and the Pussycat and other rhymes, Peter Pan and Wendy and The Wind in the Willows. For those new to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, there is a short introduction to the book and its author by Russell Ash at the back of this volume, along with a short note by the illustrator. If you've been thinking that you really need a copy of Alice for home or the nursery, then this is definitely a good one to go for. -- Philip Davies Montessori International Many illustrators have tackled visualising Lewis Carroll's fantastic imaginative flights in Alice in Wonderland and now Robert Ingpen brings his superb drawings to the imaging. Throughout this full-colour edition toning is muted and atmospheric and the subtle expressiveness of this chubby faced Alice proceeds through the many trials with aplomb. The weirdness, the numerous creatures and the familiar scenes are given fresh treatment but with an overall feel of modernity brought to a rich book from times past. An essay by Russell Ash and reproductions of a couple of facsimile pages of the first, handwritten and drawn, version add to the interest. This is a heavy, sturdily boarded, book in keeping with others in the series of classics pictured by Ingpen and published by Templar at GBP14.99 The SL 58-1 Words cannot really do justice to the quality of the illustrations in this book, each individual illustration is like a mini piece of art. The detail is superb, exquisitely illustrated, this is a very special book designated to stay in families to treasure forever. We all loved this here at Hot Brands! Highly Recommended! Hot Brands Verdict This beautiful new edition brings together Carroll's complete and unabridged classic story with more than seventy remarkable illustrations by award-winning artist Robert Ingpen. New readers and devoted fans alike will enjoy exploring Carroll's Wonderland in this sumptuous volume. HOT BRANDS COOL PLACES ...with over 70 illustrations, it is quite an incredible collection of artwork. Ingpen's style gives a fuzzy-like quality to each scene and this is emphasised by the muted colours he uses. Without being exactly dark, the artwork leaves the reader with a feeling of having been in a very odd dream, which of course is perfectly fitting for the story. This is emphasised also by the parchment-colour background of the pages, and the use of pencil sketches as well as full colour illustrations, which almost mimics coming in and out of consciousness. This is a lovely gift edition which might be more appreciated by slightly older readers. -- Melanie McGilloway www.librarymice.com A lovely classic gift edition with illustrations by Robert Ingpen. One to treasure. -- Helen Boyle WRD magazine'
