For more than 130 years, children have reveled in the delightfully non-moralistic, non-educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn, Alice's new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the "regular course" in school: Reeling, Writhing, and branches of Arithmetic-Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel's illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll's instincts were good; the masterful drawings are inextricably tied to the well-loved story. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
From the Back Cover
For over 125 years John Tenniel's superb illustrations for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland have been the perfect complement to Lewis Carroll's timeless story. In that time Alice has been illustrated by numerous artists, but not one has come close to matching the universal appeal of the original pictures.
This is the first Alice to reproduce Ternniel's exquisite drawings from prints taken directly from the original wood engravings. Here, Tenniel's fine line work is far crisper, delicate shadings are reproduced with more subtlety, and details never seen before are now visible.
Like most nineteenth-century children's books, the pictures for Alice were created by transferring the artist's drawings to woodblocks, But with Alice, the original blocks served as masters from which metal plates were made for printing. Unfortunately, these plates deteriorated from the repeated pressure applied during printing, and over time, many of the fine lines in Tenniel's pictures simply vanished altogether.As the year-, passed, the original woodblocks disappeared and were believed lost; then, in 1985 they were discovered in a London bank vault.
Now, for the first time, prints from these woodblocks have been used to produce a deluxe gift edition with clearer, more detailed images than have ever been seen before. At last, readers can see the Alice that Carroll and Tenniel had originally envisioned.--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

This is a gorgeous edition of Alice in Wonderland with beautiful illustrations (refer the pictures). It can be a great gift to children, but if you want to collect , then I would suggest to get the book which has both Alice in Wonderland and Into the Looking-glass..
Very beautiful story with colourful illustrations. Totally worth the buy.
My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟1/2
Her only request is in the next edition, there should be a few pictures.
I finally picked up this beloved children's classic and guess what?
I totally fell in love with it!
I'm yet to finish up reading the 2nd part as well but after reading this one, I got so caught up in this world which is quite imaginative and vivid.
I was able to relate with most of the things that has been written starting from Alice being bored and wanting to do something, finding herself in another world.
💫 Some of my favourite parts:
* 'Am I different?' she wondered. 'I was Alice yesterday, but everything is different today. Perhaps I’m not me now. So who am I? That’s the question.'
* 'Please, can you help me? I want to go somewhere new,' said Alice.
'Where do you want to go?' asked the Cat.
'Somewhere different,' Alice said.
* 'Oh, you can’t help that,' said the cat. 'We’re all strange here. I’m strange. You’re strange.'
'How do you know I’m strange?' asked Alice.
'Of course you are,' the Cat said. 'Everybody’s strange here. I’m very strange. I laugh when I’m sad, and I cry when I’m happy. That's strange.'
* 'So? Does your watch tell you the year?' asked the Mad Hatter.
'No,'Alice answered,' but it’s the same year for a very long time.'
(We think the same too now in 2020!)
'And my watch doesn’t tell the time because it’s always tea-time.'
(This is my favourite!!!)
Of course, a 5 🌟 read for me. It's the intense characters, the writing and the humour with a perfect ending 💫
Good delivery. I thought it could be little thicker cover, but it is so light and thin so it is very easily tearable or corners will get wrinkly unless packed well. But Happy that I received same cover and also safely in the delivery.
I suggest to cover the book for people who bought for longer use coz of thinness of book cover.

language edition translated back into English by a very bad
translation program. For instance :
... "it turned into a touch door approximately fifteen inches
excessive: she tried the little golden key within the lock, and to
her wonderful pride it equipped!"
" 'I desire they had get the trial finished,' she notion, 'and
hand spherical the refreshments!' "
Saying the author of this book was Lewis Carroll is not very
the illustrations are quite beautifully done
but on the first page there was a bit of blue ink staining like from a sticker or something I'm not entirely sure what that was about and there was a little bit of wear on the side of the spine but all in all the book was in very good condition definitely happy about buying this book.
I saw a lot of reviews about people disappointed about how big it was despite there being a picture of size in the description I've included a picture to show how big the book is compared to a standard size drink can
I read this book back when I was a kid and decided it was time to re-read it and I am so glad I did, it was just as enjoyable to read the second time around. In fact once I got going I finished this book in two days.
It is full of fun and nonsense, there will be no need to sit here and try and explain or analyze the greater meaning of this book or the author's motives as it is just plain fun with no need to really think about what your reading. I have read reviews on this book and I have found that to many people try to delve into the story and analyze it, trying to explain the meanings or try and explain why things are written the way they are but by doing this they take away the fun and nonsense of the story and don't enjoy the silliness of the story.
Alice falls down a rabbit hole, after chasing the white rabbit and comes across a wonderful land of silliness and nonsense. Whilst down there she comes across characters such as the Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, The Hatter and the Hare, The Mock Turtle and a Gryphon and lets not forget the King and Queen of Hearts. She battles between being to small or to big and questions if she is still the same person.
It is certainly a fun book to read and I very much enjoyed it. My favorite character (apart from Alice) is definitely the Cheshire Cat. He is completely mad and he's the only character in the book who actually tries angering the Queen.
There are quite a few characters in the book you come across that actually aren't in the Disney film. This is why the book is so good, it's a different story to the film really. You do come across some of the missing characters in the next book - Through The Looking glass.
If you love Disney and Alice In wonderland then you will certainly enjoy this book.
