Overview
The classic tale of Alice's adventures

Publishers Description
When Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was first published in 1865, it set critics awry: here was a book for children written for the pure pleasure of reading. It has since become one of the most famous children's books ever, translated into many different languages, performed as a play, and made into a popular Disney animated film.

More About Lewis Carroll & Hugh Haughton

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! "Lewis Carroll," creator of the brilliantly witty Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, was a pseudonym for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a shy Oxford don with a stammer.

He was born at Daresbury, Cheshire on January 27, 1832, son of a vicar. As the eldest boy among eleven children, he learned early to amuse his siblings by writing and editing family magazines. He was educated at Christ Church College, Oxford, where he lectured in mathematics from1855 to 1881. In 1861 he was ordained as a deacon.

Dodgson's entry into the world of fiction was accidental. It happened one "golden afternoon" as he escorted his colleague's three daughters on a trip up the river Isis. There he invented the story that might have been forgotten if not for the persistence of the youngest girl, Alice Liddell. Thanks to her, and to her encouraging friends, Alice was published in 1865, with drawings by the political cartoonist, John Tenniel. After Alice, Dodgson wrote Phantasmagoria and Other Poems (1869), Through the Looking-Glass (1871), The Hunting of Shark (1876, and Rhyme? and Reason? (1883).

As a mathematician Dodgson is best known for Euclid and His Modern Rivals (1879). He was also a superb children's photographer, who captured the delicate, sensuous beauty of such little girls as Alice Liddell and Ellen Terry, the future actress. W.H. Auden called him "one of the best portrait photographer of the century." Dodgson was also an inventor; his projects included a game of arithmetic croquet, a substitute for glue, and an apparatus for making notes in the dark. Though he sought publication for his light verse, he never dreamed his true gift-telling stories to children-merited publication or lasting fame, and he avoided publicity scrupulously Charles Dodgson died in 1898 of influenza.

Lewis Carroll was born in 1832 and died in 1898 and has an academic affiliation as follows - Christ Church College, Oxford.

Alice in Wonderland for the Kindle  May 24, 2010
For the price I paid and what little space it took up, it was a bargain! 1 "book" with the whole set in one-no need to purchase every book and try to find a place on the bookshelf for it.
 
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass  May 18, 2010
There were a number of detailed, old fashioned, illustrations that I had not anticipated in the book. They are well done and interesting. It is a 291 page story with fine print and notes and explanations after that! There are notes and an introduction at the beginning of the book as well. It is very different than what I was expecting but I do like it. I bought it for a 5 year old granddaughter who has a 3 year old brother and a 10 year old sister. Mom or Dad will probably read it to the three of them in the evening. Actually it seems like more of an adult book to me even though I always read books far in advance of my age and so did my children. The book was purchased form this site
 
"I should say, 'With what porpoise?'"  May 12, 2010
"Sublime nonsense" - is the nutshell that this book is. It's not cleverness - its just randomness disquised as cleverness. It just tosses a bunch of nothing together, shakes it up, mixes in a curious and rude little girl who's rudeness pales next to the characters she encounters in Wonderland. Those thousand monkeys at typewriters would produce something along these lines before getting to Shakespeare. For some reason, I never read this when I was discovering Narnia or Oz. Ormondroyd's "David & the Phoenix" has the spirit I expected to encounter in Caroll's book. Instead - this book starts nowhere and ends nowhere. And perhaps that is the nonsense that some find pleasing. For me it was simply distracting. The whole idea of the world's we create ourselves is a notion I have always been drawn to. Wonderland isn't even a world much less a persuasive daydream. Nothing there matters. And Alice just skips off at the end, leaving her sister to forecast a bit of standard drivel about the day when they will be grownups but always have their childhood inside. Meh.
 
No pictures.  May 9, 2010
I read and loved Alice as a child. I was disappointed with the version I received because none of the pictures of the characters were in this book. The pictures in the original were a large part of the charm of the book.
 
Who Says You Can't Judge a Book By Its Cover?  May 7, 2010
Great book, great cover.

This fabric book cover is GORGEOUS! Some of the paint does come off when you remove the sticker on the back, though, so be careful. I love all the others in the series, too, but I'm probably only going to collect them one-by-one. Imagine a whole bookshelf full of them!
