LoveReading View on Alice's Adventures In Wonderland - Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

Abundantly illustrated with warmth and humour by Helen Oxenbury, the memorable cast of characters are to be found in all their glory here in this edition, from Alice herself to the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat.  Her illustrations complement quite beautifully Carroll's story of logic and lunacy that has delighted young and old alike since its first publication back in 1865.


It is part of the Walker Illustrated Classics, a new series which brings together some of the best-loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists. These exquisitely designed books, with their magnificent words and glorious pictures, are a pleasure to read - and re-read.  The classics have never looked so good.

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.
