This classic story began as an improvised tale told by Lewis Carroll to a group of children in 1862 and was first formally published three years later. Its curious effect of half-dream, half-nightmare instantly captured the imaginations of both children and adults, and it has been a favourite ever since. Alice’s adventures down terabit hole, and the strange characters she meets there, remain fixed in our imaginations.
It proved an irresistible challenge to Robert Ingpen to follow in the tracks of many great illustrators including one of his heroes, Sir John Tenniel, the first illustrator of Alice. This superb edition brings together the complete and unabridged text with each illustration reflecting the unique style and extraordinary imagination of this popular story.
