Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Publisher: Old Barn Books

Review

'What is the use of a book without pictures or conversation?' thinks the drowsy Alice, as she sits beside her sister under a tree on a hot day.

What follows is such a well-known fantastical children's story that it's a delight to see this beautiful new version available for another generation of young readers. Adults who loved Alice in their childhood will also love returning to the world of the Mad Hatter, Mock Turtle and, of course, the Cheshire Cat.

First published in 1865, this much-loved children's classic features the traditional unabridged text, illustrated by Alison Jay, whose nostalgic and dreamy crackled-finish images are a perfect accompaniment. This high-quality hardback would make a lovely gift or classic addition to any bookshelf.
