Product Description

Synopsis

A story presented as if it were a lost Lewis Carroll manuscript, complete with annotations and original illustrations.

From the Author

Alice's Journey Beyond The Moon is something I wrote both for children and Carroll scholars alike. Presented as something Carroll might have written during the time of Alice Pleasance Liddell's engagement to Reginald Hargreaves, with historical footnotes (a la Martin Gardner's excellent Annotated Alice) added to reflect events in Carroll's life up to that point.

This is my first published work for which a tree gave its life. I hope you enjoy it. -- R.J. Carter

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderlandful! 20 Mar 2009
Format:Paperback
The description for this book (particularly the "From the author" section) given on this product's page tells you all you need to know. And I have to say, this is a lovely little book. The story is genuinely Carrollian, the footnotes a la Martin Gardner are a joy, and the illustrations are delightful. Also, the "lost manuscript" notion is an excellent twist; suspending belief, I could almost believe Lewis Carroll truly did write this!

5.0 out of 5 stars terrific addition to the great Alice tales 31 Oct 2004
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
While renovating the library of the Christ Church, Oxford, a series of letters, doodles and a manuscript by Reverend Charles Dodgson is found. Everyone on the project is excited because a new Alice tale, ALICE'S JOURNEY BEYOND THE MOON, has been uncovered amongst the treasure. Since there is no reference to this tale amongst the Dodgson's notes, scholars debate the find, but believe it is an authentic Lewis Carroll Alice story.

ALICE'S JOURNEY BEYOND THE MOON as related by Lewis Carroll follows Alice and her cat Snowball debating what makes up the moon with an eclipse on the horizon. Alice wonders could it be made of green cheese and how tasty that would be. Or could it be stone like her father insists? Of course, Snowball mostly purrs in response. Still not sure, Alice feels a visit is in order. She ponders how far the moon can be from her home as she knows the moon is closer than say Russia as she sees the moon, but not Russia. So Alice begins her latest adventure less than a year from her return from the Looking Glass.

Lewis Carroll would be proud to include this terrific homage to the great Alice tales as ALICE'S JOURNEY BEYOND THE MOON will entertain children while also providing satire and wit to feed the head of adults as her earlier adventures do. The story line is fun to follow while the footnotes enhance the "discovery" and the fabulous illustrations highlight and enrich the delightful text. R. J. Carter provides a winning Alice adventure that all ages will appreciate while floating along with the heroine.
