Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When I ordered this I hadn't realised it was an adaptation made by Lewis Carroll himself, and it certainly shows as it perfectly simplifies the story without making a hash of it. It was quite a pleasant surprise as I was more interested in the illustrations when ordering it, but the text is actually quite enchanting. The whole book has a lovely vintage feel about it, both in terms of the simplified story, the beautiful nostalgic illustrations that evoke memories of nurseries & playing make-believe and the choice of font & paper stock. This book is a real keeper!
