LoveReading View on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Winner of the 1999 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal   A wonderful 150th-anniversary edition of Lewis Carroll's timeless classic, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury in this beautiful award-winning interpretation. 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 Synopsis

For a century and a half Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll's classic story of logic and lunacy, has delighted young and old alike. Gorgeously illustrated, this award-winning rendition 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!

Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Kurt Maschler Award.  

A word from Helen Oxenbury:

I was introduced to Alice by my mother who had loved it as a child.  She read it to me when I was about 8 and many of Carroll's jokes and much of his wonderful nonsense went over my head, but she must have passed on her enthusiasm, because I have read it many times since then and my enjoyment grows with each reading.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Press Reviews

'Simply one to own.' The Times

'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

Carroll had a happy childhood. His mother was patient and gentle, and his father, despite his religious duties, tutored all his children and raised them to be good people.
