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.

"Only Lewis Carroll has shown us the world upside down the way a child sees it, and has made us laugh as children laugh." --Virginia Woolf
Usborne are widely known for their very popular range of abridged classics... Chunky and complete with clear print and colour illustrations, these should appeal to those parents and grandparents keen to encourage children to encounter past great reads in their entirety. With this very approachable and palatable format there is a good chance they will succeed. --Sonia Benster, The Children s Bookshop --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

I'd recommend this book to those who want a "special" version of Alice, and if buying it for a youngster, one that is read together with a parent... rougher yougsters could definitely wreck this, although the "build-quality" is very robust.
The presentation is first class. It comes with a hard cover which seems to be stretched printed fabric. The book also has illustrations through out, which I didn't expect and a pink ribbon to remember which page your on.
If you not aware, they also do a variety of book in this style which would be great for anyone's collection.
I love the way it's been written.
All in all this is a first class book.
Happy reading! :)
