Description

intimately tied to the illustrations created by Tenniel, and it is therefore perhaps no great surprise that when copyright to Wonderland expired in 1907, the appearance of a plethora of new illustrated versions was received with some significant objection by English reviewers. Alice finds another bottle and drinks from it, which causes her to grow to such an extent that she gets stuck in the house.

With a cast of characters known the world over, and reproduced in every entertainment form imaginable, it's made "Alice" the one word name that everyone recognizes as Lewis Carroll's iconic character. This is a rare kind of book – it appeals to all ages and can entertain and enlighten, it has also stood the test of time with it never losing its popularity. The blank-faced little girl made famous by John Tenniel's original illustrations has become a cultural inkblot we can interpret in any way we like. Since the story was intimately tied to the illustrations by Tenniel, new illustrated versions were then received with some significant objection by English reviewers.On 26 November 1864, Carroll gave Alice the manuscript of Alice's Adventures Under Ground, with illustrations by Carroll, dedicating it as "A Christmas Gift to a Dear Child in Memory of a Summer's Day". The only sobering thought which kept recurring through the book was how Alice was not sure who she was anymore after being trapped in the Wonderland for so long.

Lewis Carroll and Anthony Browne, illustrator of an edition from Julia MacRae Books, wins the Kurt Maschler Award.It took me a while to figure out that every line, every word, every dialogue was a puzzle that you have to unravel yourself. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games and charming letters. Carroll's volume is bound by distinctive pink bonded leather, with black illustration and gold leaf embellishment; "Beautiful" is an understatement when describing this collection; it's exquisite - to say the least! However, when the Queen demands that Alice be beheaded, Alice realizes that the characters are only a pack of cards, and she then awakens from her dream.
