If you read this as a child, saw Disney’s version, which takes bits from both, or seen any of the other cartoons then you must read them again as an adult – you’ll get so much more out of them. Just the precision of language alone is a joy – something the films can’t give you in the same way, and if it’s only the films you’ve seen then you don’t know Alice at all and have missed a treat.
Age range 9 to 12 Down the rabbit-hole and through the looking-glass! Lewis Carroll's novels Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (first published in 1865 and 1871, respectively) have entertained readers young and old for more than a century. Their magical worlds, amusing characters, clever dialogue, and playfully logical illogic epitomise the wit and whimsy of Carroll's writing. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland transports you down the rabbit-hole into a wondrous realm that is home to a White Rabbit, a March Hare, a Mad Hatter, a tea-drinking Dormouse, a grinning Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts and her playing-card retainers, and all manner of marvellous creatures. Through the Looking-Glass is your passport to a topsy-turvy world on the other side of the mirror, where you have to run fast just to stay in place, memory works backwards, and it is possible to believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass is the first in a new collection of Children's Deluxe editions. These volumes will feature foil-stamped binding and distinctive gilt edging and an attractive ribbon bookmark. Additionally, this new deluxe leather-bound edition features coloured illustrations of John Tenniel.
