Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read

Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback Clothbound Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design. 'I had sent my heroine straight down a rabbit-hole without the least idea what was to happen afterwards,' wrote Dodgson, describing how Alice was conjured up one 'golden afternoon' in 1862 to entertain his child-friend Alice Liddell. In the magical world of Wonderland and the back-to-front Looking-Glass kingdom, order is turned upside-down: a baby turns into a pig; time is abandoned at a tea-party; and a chaotic game of chess makes a 7-year-old a Queen.

Fun read for adults and children. It is different then the newly created movies of Alice in Wonderland with different characters and even some of the characters we know from the movies.

I agree, Definitely for the young at heart! I just love its total nonsense and yet the story has so much heart.
I have found that everyone who reads Alice feels particularly attached to different parts of the story... This may reflect badly on me but my favourite lines would have to be the most nonsensical: "Twas brillig/and the slithy toves/did gyre and gimbel in the wabe/all mimsy were the borogoves/and the mome raths outgrabe"... Curiouser and curiouser!

"I think I should understand that better," Alice said very politely, "if I had it written down? but I ca'n't quite follow it as you say it." Alice-Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

“Why, sometimes I've believed in more than six impossible things before breakfast.”
