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 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.
About the Author
Lewis Carroll is the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898). He was an English author, mathematician, and photographer. His novels Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass were originally written for a little girl, but became extremely popular among adult readers.
The many works of Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914) include many humorous and political cartoons for Punch and other periodicals of the time, but he is best known for his illustrations of the original editions of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Class.
Chris Riddell is an internationally acclaimed writer and illustrator whose many awards include the Nestle Gold Award and two Kate Greenaway Medals--the most prestigious prize for illustration in the UK. He is the creator of more than one hundred books for all ages, including the immensely popular series the Edge Chronicles and his latest chapter book series, starring the irrepressible Ottoline Brown, which School Library Journal called "exceptional." Chris lives in Brighton, England, where he invents his amazing characters in a very tidy shed in his yard.
