9781598951622: Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass: Library Edition

"Curiouser and curiouser!" cried Alice  (she was so much surprised, that for the moment  she quite forgot how to speak good English.)  "Now I'm opening out like the largest telescope that  ever was! Good-bye,  feet!"

Alice and all her many friends will never be  forgotten so long as books for children are published.  The fascinating adventures of this timeless little  girl as she plunges down the rabbit-hole, shrinks  and grows, meets the pack of cards and the chess  pieces -- should be read regularly by all ages for  their totally original fantasy, their humor, and  their charm.

Review:

"And what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"

Taking to heart his charming, insatiably curious heroine's words, Lewis Carroll worked many long hours (days, months...) with illustrator Sir John Tenniel to create the most perfect pictures imaginable for what were to become instant classics: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. When thinking about Alice and her dreamy surrealistic adventures down the rabbit hole and behind the looking-glass, who can help picturing the golden-haired girl in her lilac dress and striped stockings, gazing up at the Cheshire Cat or arguing with Tweedledum and Tweedledee? Tenniel's drawings remained black and white for over 40 years until 1911, when eight prints in each book were hand colored. Now, for the first time, every remaining illustration has been colored, making these the first editions to feature all of the original art in full color. Traditionalists need not worry: colorist Diz Wallis colored proofs taken from Tenniel's carefully preserved woodblocks, remaining faithful to his original drawings. The beautiful tones of these new hardcover editions look as natural as can be; they could just as easily be from the 19th century. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter

From the Back Cover:

“Only Lewis Carroll has shown us the world upside down as a child sees it, and has made us laugh as children laugh.” —Virginia Woolf
