Synopsis

Michael Foreman's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

A beautiful new edition of the timeless classic featuring the Kate Greenaway Award nominated illustrations of Michael Foreman, one of today's best-loved artists. This is a gift book to be enjoyed by families year after year and a great addition to any child's home library. Without a doubt one of the greatest achievements in children's literature, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland introduces children to a whole world of humour, fun and invention. Featuring more iconic characters and locations than any other children's story, Alice's world introduces today's children to the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, the evil Queen of Hearts, the tea party and, of course, the rabbit hole that starts it all. Michael Foreman's watercolours beautifully capture the world of Wonderland in all of its breathtaking glory. The Illustrator Michael Foreman's numerous books for children have earned him widespread recognition as one of the world's leading illustrators. He has worked on a vast range of children's books, and has collaborated with Terry Jones on all of his books for children. He also writes and illustrates his own books, including War Boy and War Game - winners of the Kate Greenaway Award and Smarties Book Prize respectively - and After the War was Over. Also he has illustrated The Knight and the Squire and The Lady and the Squire, as well as the classic stories Peter Pan and Wendy and The Wind in the Willows. Michael lives in London and St Ives.

Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was born on 27th January 1832 at Daresbury in Cheshire. He studied at Christ Church, Oxford University and later became a mathematics lecturer there. He wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872) for the daughters of the Dean of Christ Church. He was very fond of puzzles and some readers have found mathematical jokes and codes hidden in his Alice books. His other works include Phantasmagoria and Other Poems (1869), The Hunting of the Snark (1876), Rhyme? And Reason? (1882), The Game of Logic (1887) and Sylvie and Bruno (1889, 1893).
