Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Alice in Wonderland (originally published as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Charles Lutwidge Dodson, under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll) has been continuously in print since its publication in 1866. It was the first, and still one of the best, absurdist fantasies for children, and continues to delight children and adults alike. Many of its main characters--the Cheshire cat, the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit--are now simply a part of our culture, and allusions to Alice's story are common throughout the past century of literature. This edition is the complete, unabridged, original story, in a handsome new edition featuring, on the cover, a 21st century innovation: a word cloud showing the relative frequency of individual words and phrases within the complete text.
Amazon.com Review
Source of legend and lyric, reference and conjecture, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is for most children pure pleasure in prose. While adults try to decipher Lewis Carroll's putative use of complex mathematical codes in the text, or debate his alleged use of opium, young readers simply dive with Alice through the rabbit hole, pursuing "The dream-child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new." There they encounter the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, among a multitude of other characters--extinct, fantastical, and commonplace creatures. Alice journeys through this Wonderland, trying to fathom the meaning of her strange experiences. But they turn out to be "curiouser and curiouser," seemingly without moral or sense.

For more than 130 years, children have reveled in the delightfully non-moralistic, non-educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn, Alice's new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the "regular course" in school: Reeling, Writhing, and branches of Arithmetic-Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel's illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll's instincts were good; the masterful drawings are inextricably tied to the well-loved story.
