For over a hundred years, Lewis Carroll's classic story of logic and lunacy has delighted young and old alike. More abundantly illustrated than previous editions, this award-winning interpretation is full of warmth and humour. The whole approach is contemporary and accessible: Alice herself is a child of today - casually dressed, personable, spirited. In Helen Oxenbury's hands, the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland is a wondrous place indeed! One of the most talked about children's books in recent years, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland won the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Kurt Maschler Award. Now readers young and old can enjoy it at a fabulous price, with a free mini calendar featuring artwork from the book - the perfect gift!

Helen Oxenbury says that her mother read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to her as a child. "When I came to it as an illustrator," she adds, "I wanted to make it accessible for children to read on their own. I wanted to set the scene more, and to make more of the peripheral characters." Twice awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal, Helen has also been Highly Commended several times, and has thrice won the Smarties Book Prize - for Farmer Duck, We're Going on a Bear Hunt and So Much.Review:
"An 'Alice' for the new millennium, this book is a triumph of design and rare quality. Helen Oxenbury perfectly captures the dreamlike qualities suggested in Carroll's famous classic." The Guardian "Fresh, modern and comic." The Sunday Times
