The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the 1999 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal Full of the most wondrous wit and humour, wonderful magic and believable nonsense, this particular edition has the most stunning illustrations that complement the imaginative story that’s anything but dull. The story is timeless and can be read at so many different levels. It’s a book that can be read by people of all ages; for children it’s a wonderful underworld fantasy that will develop a passion for reading imaginative writing and for everyone else there’s innuendo, puzzling situations that require deciphering, political machinations and bucket loads of surrealism. Plenty of food for thought and a real antidote to the modern world.
From Philip Pullman: "Indispensable. The great classic beginning of English children's literature."
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (illustrated by Helen Oxenbury) by Lewis Carroll
A multi-award-winning classic - now in paperback. For over a hundred years, Lewis Carroll's classic story of logic and lunacy has delighted young and old alike. More abundantly illustrated than previous editions, this award-winning interpretation is full of warmth and humour. The whole approach is contemporary and accessible: Alice herself is a child of today - casually dressed, personable, spirited.
In Helen Oxenbury's hands, the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland is a wondrous place indeed! One of the most talked about children's books of 1999, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland won the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Kurt Maschler Award.
'An Alice for the new millennium, this book is a triumph of design and rare quality. Helen Oxenbury perfectly captures the dreamlike qualities suggested in Carroll's famous classic.' - The Guardian
'Fresh, modern and comic.' - The Sunday Times
