The Nursery "Alice" brings the classic story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to the youngest of readers, with all the beauty and all the silliness of the original. The English Rose edition: Sir John Tenniel's original illustrations have been exceptionally improved and coloured in The Nursery "Alice" making the book all the more attractive and inspiring to younger audiences. Each character is beautifully drawn and described, as Alice wends her way through Wonderland, and the language is especially adapted so that it is easy for young children to understand. This English Rose edition is a high quality, beautiful piece with enhanced images, clear formatting and loving attention to detail. English Rose love books and think that every one is special, so our editions will always be distinctive, professional and unique.

About the Author:

Lewis Carroll was the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), a mathematician famous for his books for children. The Alice stories were written for Alice Liddell, the daughter of the dean of his college. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There (1872) have been loved by adults and children ever since. Sir John Tenniel (1820–1914) was a Victorian topical cartoonist, caricaturist, and illustrator. Famous during his life for his contributions to the satirical magazine Punch, he is best remembered today for his work in Alice.
