Thoroughly ripped off, this edit has stripped away so much of the language of the era and dummed it down - , dont buy!

This story has all the elements that a classic fairy tale can offer: talking creatures, magic potions and loveable characters. I read this story when I was a young girl and I honestly think that I have got even more enjoyment from it now. It’s like Lewis Carroll’s 19th century written version of ‘Shrek’ - whatever the age you will find something new to enjoy from the story.

Whilst the Johnny Depp adaptation is visually stunning, ’Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ is a literary dream. The puns and witty conversations that Alice has in Wonderland are funny to read and Carroll plays with language whilst still keeping this a fun and light-hearted story. If you have not read the book but have seen the film, I implore you to read this (and it is one of the classic novels that are free to download) because there is so much on offer that will delight imaginations, both young and old.

I really enjoyed reading this and felt the story was a lot shorter than I remembered it to be! The croquet scene was so funny to read and the image of the hedgehogs escaping (they are the balls in the game), the flamingos not cooperating (the bats), and the general chaos caused by the Queen of Hearts made this delightful to read.

This novel should be an obligatory read for all because of how much it has to offer. Disregard what you feel you know from watching film adaptations and immerse yourself into Carroll’s timeless Wonderland. It’s not just Alice’s adventures in Wonderland, but Alice’s adventures in Wonderful.

I should have realised early on, this version has been butchered. Great chunks and most of the humour missing. Rip off.

I thought I knew alice in wonderland but I was wrong. I'd seen both the animated and non animated versions but this book told me something that was stranger and sensational. Not only was it interesting it was also enticing. personaly my favorite character jad to be the rabbit. I think it was aimed at teenages but it turned out to be for everyone.

A very strange little book. I was expecting a longer novel with more details having watched the movies but it seems the movies have just taken the idea and expanded greatly.

On the face of it this book seems to be Alice's dream but if analysed you could find some dark interpretation or at least wonder what Carroll had consumed that day!

This exceeded expectations. My daughter loves it. The quality is great and the image is fab. Mum needed to push it in as daughters fingers were not strong enough however, at least I know it will not fall out.
Only wish I had a kindle !

Loved every second of reading this book, brings back my childhood. so easy to read and only took me 3 days for me to read it. I think it would be great for a bed time story for children. Great read!
