You never know where you'll find yourself in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll!

Join Alice in Wonderland, where nothing is quite as it seems.

On an ordinary summer's afternoon, Alice tumbles down a hole and an extraordinary adventure begins. In a strange world with even stranger characters, she meets a grinning cat and a rabbit with a pocket watch, joins a Mad Hatter's Tea Party, and plays croquet with the Queen! Lost in this fantasy land, Alice finds herself growing more and more curious by the minute . . .

With a wonderfully inspiring introduction by Chris Riddell, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is one of the twelve brilliant classic stories relaunched with a lovely new cover.

Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-98), grew up in Cheshire in the village of Daresbury, the son of a parish priest.

What a wonderful way to spend part of a lazy afternoon! Such a teeny tiny little story filled with so many amusing characters. The story makes no sense at the best of times, but dreams aren't supposed to make sense usually anyway. Read full review

Pretty disappointed with the book. :( I thought I would like it a lot but so many of jumping around and constant changing that made me feel like I got lost...several times. Had a hard time to stay motivated to read but I did finish the book. Read full review
