Included are all 90+ of the original publications' John Tenniel illustrations properly formatted and sized within the story. Read the Alice saga the way it was meant to be read.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: Down the rabbit hole away little Alice goes. Follow her at your own peril, but beware of the world you are about to enter. One with a decapitation-crazed queen, an unintelligible duchess, a sleepy dormouse, a chronically late rabbit, a witty Cheshire cat, a blue hookah-smoking caterpillar, a Hatter and a March Hare hosting a mad tea party, and a caucus race so bewildering that the best way to explain it is just to do it.
Through the Looking Glass: Adventure, mayhem, and madness continue for young Alice after she climbs through the mirror hanging above her fireplace's mantel. Into the reflective world she travels, and soon she discovers that just as everything is backward in a mirror's reflection, so is everything, from backward sentences to backward logic, in the mirror world. Rank by rank, Alice must cross through an enormous chess board as she meets a fantastical motley crew of creatures, chess pieces, and humans alike. What shall happen when little Alice reaches the end of the chess board?
