Synopsis

Synopsis

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the river bank, and of having nothing to do...when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran by her. Alice did not think it so very strange to hear the Rabbit say to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" But when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat pocket and then hurried on, she started to wonder! Running after the strange fellow, she was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole. Down jumped Alice after it (never considering how in the world she was to get out again) and she tumbled into a curious world inhabited by the Mad Hatter, the Ugly Duchess, the Mock Turtle, the Cheshire Cat, and more…

With his marvelous sense of the absurd, Lewis Carroll’s whimsical, fantastical tale delighted children and adults when it was first published in 1865 and has since become a treasured classic of literature.

"Rarely is the word 'masterpiece' used in reviewing anything, but this unabridged edition of a classic definitely brings the word to mind, in hushed and reverent tones." --------

Publishers Weekly, starred review
11/01/1999
"...Oxenbury's [ALICE] brims with the fun and frights of a visit to an amusement park. In perhaps her most ambitious work to date, Oxenbury applies her finely honed instinct for a child's perspective to create an Alice accessible to all ages. An ideal first introduction to a lifelong favorite read." --------

New York Times Book Review, The
12/02/1999
"Altogether, the chill is gone from the appearance of a story that after all remains frightening in its upside-down, inside-out logic. If Helen Oxenbury has eased children's way to the enduring fascination of Lewis Carroll's text, then so much the better, and more power to her." --------

"The volume is oversized, the typeface large and friendly, the margins generous. This beautiful book quietly takes Alice out of the inky hands of scholars and places her back in the hands of children, where she has always belonged."
