    Book details


Celebrating 150 years of Lewis Carroll's Alice, with such extra materials as a quiz, a word search, and a glossary

Alice's second adventure takes her through the looking glass to a place even curiouser than Wonderland. She finds herself caught up in the great looking glass chess game and sets off to become a queen. It isn't as easy as she expects: at every step she is hindered by nonsense characters who crop up and insist on reciting poems. Some of these poems, such as "The Walrus and The Carpenter" and "Jabberwocky" are as famous as the Alice stories themselves. Macmillan was the original publisher of Alice in 1865 and is proud to remain true to the vision of its creators. Every bit as iconic are Sir John Tenniel's remarkable illustrations, perfectly capturing the combination of the ordinary and the extraordinary at the heart of Wonderland.

    This is incredible! Absolutely beautiful.. Extended my expectations!! I have seriously never seen a more beautiful book! The detail is awesome and even the story itself is from the original Lewis Carroll version. Not only is each page a beautiful pop up.. But each page has mini fold out pages with more pop up artwork. This will be a keepsake for our family. SO glad I bought this and will look at buying others!

    I took a gamble on buying this edition when no one had reviewed it yet. I tried several other Kindle editions available and had found them truly appalling in terms of formatting. This however, is significantly better, featuring well structured chapter breaks and all the original illustrations, which enhance the story a lot.Furthermore, considering it contains both books, plus the excellent Hunting of the Snark, it is a fantastic price.However, there are still some glaring mistakes, such as some formatting bugs in a few of the poems and spelling errors in places (such as at the start of Looking Glass, where some of the Ls are replaced with 1s - I guess a scanner did the 'writing here').5 stars for the great price and superior formatting over the other options. -1 star for the glaring lack of proof reading from the publisher.

    We ordered the Alice in Wonderland with the green leather cover. I thought it was difficult to tell which reviews went with which versions. I'm really glad we grabbed this version, the cover (despite the ugly green color) is quite beautiful with embossed lettering and shiny red roses and border. The edge of the pages are golden, there is a red ribbon for marking your page. All of the original artwork is presented, and the page layouts are perfect. The front and back cover have a vivid full color painting of the tea party. If you are looking for a high quality version of the book, I couldn't recommend this one more. The size is medium. It is half way between the size of a paperback and a hard cover text book.

    I don't always like annotated editions, but I bought this one because both stories were included and it retains all of the original illustrations like the ones I remember reading as a child. Having said that, I enjoyed the illustrations by other artists included for historical context. Some of them are quite stunning, in fact. The thing I hate about annotated editions is the way the annotations create visual "clutter." Yes, that is the case here as well. I really have to force my slightly OCD-like mind to ignore that and concentrate on the text of the story. However, as a history buff, I enjoy reading the annotations from a historical perspective. It's a big book, so if you enjoy a hefty hardcover, this is the one for you.

    Bought it in the hardcover. My girlfriend loves alive in wonderland! And has Dali paintings all around the house. When she saw they were coming out with this illustrated edition She had to have It!So on our anniversary I looked and looked. I found it here! I couldn't have been more happy about my purchase, and my girlfriend was absolutely overwhelmingly ecstatic and loves it. Amazing in every way

    Follow Alice down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass as she encounters many marvelous creatures in world full of incredible adventure! This is a tale that never tires and will continue to be shared for years to come.This was an E book purchase, and one of the best I have made. I was pleasantly surprised with how well this was formatted. I am a huge fan of the Alice in Wonderland collection, and this set is complete with all four books. I was thrilled that Alice Underground (the original manuscript) was included. The classic illustrations only add more charm to what has been an endearing classic for years. I would absolutely love to have this set in hardback.
