LoveReading View on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (illustrated by Helen Oxenbury)

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) Synopsis

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.

'Fresh, modern and comic.' - The Sunday Times

Lewis Carroll was born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson on January 27, 1832, the eldest son and third of eleven children born to Frances Jane Lutwidge and the Reverend Charles Dodgson. 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. Carroll frequently made up games and wrote stories and poems, some of which were similar to his later published works, for his seven sisters and three brothers. He was educated at Richmond School in Yorkshire, Rugby School and Christ Church, Oxford. Although his years ...
