Publisher Description:

One of the English language's most popular and frequently quoted books,Alice's Adventures in Wonderlandwas the creation of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 - 1898), a distinguished scholar and mathematician who wrote under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. Intended for young readers but enjoyed equally by adults, the fantastic tale transformed children's literature, liberating it from didactic constraints.
The story is deeply but gently satiric, enlivened with an imaginative plot and brilliant use of nonsense. As Alice explores a bizarre underground world, she encounters a cast of strange characters and fanciful beasts: the White Rabbit, March Hare, and Mad Hatter; the sleepy Dormouse and grinning Cheshire Cat; the Mock Turtle, the dreadful Queen of Hearts, and a host of other extraordinary personalities. This edition features Sir John Tenniel's complete original illustrations, bringing to life a beloved classic that has delighted readers and listeners since its first publication in 1865.

Reprint of the Macmillan Company, New York, 1898 edition.

Lewis Carroll invites you to go with Alice down the rabbit hole. Follow the white rabbit as he's in a hurry for the queen's game of croquet, recite Old Father William with the mushroom-perching caterpillar, find out why the mock turtle is so full of sorrow, and attend a mad tea party. Wonderland is a fantasy world of nonsense, overflowing with contradiction and absurdity. Read how Alice manages to discover her identity and shrink and grow while she struggles to make sense of her kooky environment. Contains original illustrations by John Tenniel. Both versions are unabridged, but the design and layout of the Evergreen Classic edition is more appealing to younger readers.
