IPA will be very difficult for those that never needed it as part of a learning foreign language. However, if you know a bit the alphabet, I think you will be able to get used to it slowly. The beginning is tough; be ready to read at 5 a year-old speed, trying several times the same word and wondering what you really read, but after a while you get speedier and you can recognise words automatically. I am still in chapter two but I found that by repeating correctly over and over again the same words, they have become easier to say and people ask me fewer times to repeat what I said. Sometimes, I see their phonetic writing when I am speaking...Of course, this positive impression could also be just psychological, i.e. me believing I am (finally!) improving but, even in this case, it has increased my self-esteem and it has helped me to speak more confidently.
About the book: The foreword is written in English and IPA, so it can be used as a guidance. The illustrations are really beautiful. They are by John Tenniel from 1865 (see pic).
That aside, it is a classic piece of literature. I have heard it said that "Wonderland" is one of LC's visions when he had a Grand Mal (apparently he was epileptic) but having got this condition myself (extremely well-controlled I might add). I am not sure if this is true. Nevertheless, this is a welcome addition to my ever growing collection! Well worth reading!
This is a terrible way to treat a classic.
I remembered that my parents did try to read it to me as a child but that I wouldn't let them get through the story, I found it so boring I left the room every time they read it to me and they soon gave up. People don't change, I guess. But I'm definitely not any more drawn to any mad hatter parties than i was before...
This is the first e-book I obtained for free after deciding revisit children's classics which I never got around to read when young. It's about a young girl going on an adventure in a magical land after following a rabbit down a hole. I saw the 1985 TV movie of Alice in Wonderland in the late 1980s, and I remember enjoying the movie more than the book. I didn't seem to connect with Alice while reading. This version of the book includes John Tenniel's original illustrations, which are lovely. Overall, recommended for children.

Lots of typographical errors in the first half - will see what second half/book is like.
Shame as I though this was a direct reprint of an older version but clearly not.
