Description


EXCEPTIONAL UNABRIDGED EDITION

TWO NOVELS IN A SINGLE BOOK

Fully illustrated with the original illustrations by Sir John Tenniel.

Read two of the greatest English masterpieces of all time:
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1866) and its sequel, Through the Looking Glass (1872), by Lewis Carroll.

The young Alice is bored in a too conventional world. But here goes a White Rabbit, dressed in a frock coat with a pocket watch. Alice follows the hasty hare and falls into Wonderland, a fantasy world populated by peculiar creatures and governed by the wicked Queen of Hearts. A world where nothing makes sense
And when Alice passes through the mirror, she faces an upside down world where many more surprises await her ...

These amazing tales are a brilliant mix of fantasy, farcical satire and nonsense, where Alice encounters a twisted cast of unforgettable characters. Lewis Carroll takes us into the children's world of make-believe where the height of adventure is limited only by the depths of imagination.

Follow Alice's fantastic journey in this definitive edition which includes both masterpieces, unabridged and fully illustrated with the original illustrations by John Tenniel.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), better known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was an English writer, Anglican deacon, photographer and professor of mathematics and logic at Christ Church College. Alice's adventures originally emerged to entertain Alice Liddell and her two sisters, daughters of the Dean of Christ Church, during a rowing trip on the Thames River.
The works encountered an instant success and had a huge impact on popular culture worldwide.
