Originally written for 'the real Alice', Alice Liddell, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has become one of the world's best-loved children's classics. This wonderful journey into Alice's imagination has fascinated and delighted readers of all ages. Although the story was written for a real child, Tenniel's original illustrations were quite different to the dark-haired Alice Liddell. Michael has returned to the photographs taken by Lewis Carroll of the 'real' Alice, and created a wonderful imaginative progression of illustrations, moving from sepia-toned realistic images, to the vivid colours and magical landscapes of Wonderland. Michael's Alice is bold, curious, dark-haired and distinctive - very different from some other contemporary Alices!

Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has continuously delighted readers, young and old, for more than a century. A classic tale that has been interpreted by many an outstanding artist over the years, this remarkable story of one little girl who embarks on possibly one of the most amazing, fantastical adventures in literary history has more than stood the test of time.
Here, in this stunning special edition, Helen Oxenbury, one of the most exceptional contemporary children's illustrators, turns her hand to what is certainly no small project and has succeeded in surpassing expectation. More abundantly illustrated than other editions of the same work, this unabridged version is packed with contemporary and accessible interpretations of the kaleidoscope of characters--the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts--who have each captured the imaginations of generations of children.
Alice herself is portrayed as a thoroughly modern miss--casually dressed, personable, and spirited--and her surroundings are brought to effervescent life with a warmth, depth and distinctive sense of humour that perfectly complements the shenanigans of the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland.
Only 1,000 copies of this limited edition have been published and each one has been numbered and signed by Helen Oxenbury. The perfect life-time gift for any child, this stylish version of Carroll's unforgettable fantasy is ideal for children and adults to treasure forever. (Age 7 and over) --Susan HarrisonReview:
