A book that’s chock full of great conversations between Alice and some extraordinary animals, ranging from the pipe-smoking caterpillar and the Mad Hatter, to the March Hare and the sneezing Duchess. For Chris Riddell, who has written the Introduction to this classic his favourite conversation is the one Alice has with a tearful Mock Turtle. But just as good as the conversations, he says, ‘are the original illustrations drawn by a famous political cartoonist, which bring the world of Wonderland vividly to life’. This terrific pocket size Puffin Classics edition there’s lots of additional material at the end of the book including an author profile, a guide to who’s who in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland plus many related activities to do beyond the book. An unabridged audio of this title is also available from Puffin.
From Philip Pullman: "Indispensable. The great classic beginning of English children's literature."
On an ordinary summer's afternoon, Alice tumbles down a hole and an extraordinary adventure begins. In a strange world with even stranger characters, she meets a rabbit with a pocket watch, joins a Mad Hatter's Tea Party, and plays croquet with the Queen! Lost in this fantasy land, Alice finds herself growing more and more curious by the minute.
