Alice in Wonderland is one of the most popular, inviting, and adventurous stories of all time.

One normal summer day, Alice is sitting on the riverbank when a big, white, talking rabbit runs past. He pops into a big rabbit hole, and Alice follows him down, down, down into a strange and magical land.

Alice has many exciting adventures in this extraordinary place called Wonderland. Here, anything can happen: All the animals talk, a deck of cards comes to life, and everything gets curiouser and curiouser. This is the timeless tale of Alice's adventures in Wonderland.

I love how adventurous, but at times nonsensical, the two books are. The characters and events are quite memorable, while the chess board in Through the Looking Glass makes one pay attention. Read full review

User Review  - fefferbooks - LibraryThing

This is a great edition, because it contains footnotes explaining all of Carroll's political and literary references. If you're trying to actually *understand* what Alice is all about, this is the version you want. Read full review

Charles Luthwidge Dodgson was born in Daresbury, England on January 27, 1832. He became a minister of the Church of England and a lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was the author, under his own name, of An Elementary Treatise on Determinants, Symbolic Logic, and other scholarly treatises. He is better known by his pen name of Lewis Carroll. Using this name, he wrote Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. He was also a pioneering photographer, and he took many pictures of young children, especially girls, with whom he seemed to empathize. He died on January 14, 1898.
