... if you got this far in all of the other product info that Amazon includes with this title ... you're now reading the product description for THIS (BLTC Press) Kindle edition of Alice! PLEASE note that all of the reviews (like for the "free" edition) are jumbled together here and do not reflect this edition!
Like all BLTC Press editions, this has been carefully prepared for ebook publication. This edition includes all of the original illustrations by Sir John Tenniel, (at very high resolution), along with the prefatory verses commemorating the original telling of the story begun on a boat ride along the Thames, and a special introduction to the BLTC Press edition. Carefully formatted with active table of contents.
All of the special typographic features of the original are also preserved -- the section-dividing rows of stars and mouse’s “tale” reflect the original print edition.
Please download a sample of the BLTC Press edition. If you are a true lover of the original Alice, you won't be disappointed!
The magic of this work never wears off. By including it in your ereader libarary, you can dip back in to Wonderland at any time, if only for a short visit.

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. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter
