LoveReading View on Alice in Wonderland

The extraordinary adventures of Alice after she falls down a rabbit hole and finds herself in a world where everything is completely topsy turvy are magnificently captured in Emma Chichester Clark’s glorious illustrations. Down a hole lined with beautiful things falls Alice before she lands in the famous pool of tears and moves on to meet the White rabbit, the Cheshire Cat with its famous grin and, of course, the Mad Hatter. Every picture is rich in details, which reflect the brilliance of Lewis Carroll’s original story.


Alice in Wonderland Synopsis

Step into the magical world of Wonderland in this gloriously illustrated picture book retelling of Lewis Carroll's enduring classic, from the highly-regarded, prize-winning illustrator of Blue Kangaroo and Melrose and Croc. When Alice follows a white rabbit down a hole she discovers the extraordinary world of Wonderland, where a magical adventure begins. It's not long before Alice finds herself attending a very unconventional tea party and taking part in a peculiar game of croquet, all in the company of such mysterious and unforgettable characters as the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and the Mock Turtle. Lewis Carroll's classic story is brought alive for a new generation of readers in this exquisite picture book.

Alice in Wonderland Press Reviews

'Emma Chichester Clark's intelligent update of Alice in Wonderland makes it more accessible and less frightening than Lewis Carroll's original, complete with John Tenniel's dark, prickly Victorian pictures. Girls of 5+ should enjoy it.' - Amanda Craig, The Times
