Laszlo Matulay has based his big splashy colored pictures on the traditional Tenniel drawings, but the text adaptation holds small justification. The familiar rhythms and pattern of words which make Alice a family possession through life have gone, and what is left serves merely as transitional material connecting the favorite poems which, thank goodness, have not been tampered with. Boards. (Kirkus Reviews)
Back cover copy
One of the most popular and most quoted books in English, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" was the creation of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), a distinguished scholar, mathematician, and author who wrote under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Written for young readers but enjoyed equally by adults, the wonderfully fantastic tale is credited with revolutionizing children's literature and liberating it from didactic constraints. The story is deeply but gently satiric, enlivened with an imaginative plot and brilliant use of nonsense, as it relates Alice's adventures in a bizarre, topsy-turvy land underground. There she encounters a cast of strange characters and fanciful beasts, including the White Rabbit, March Hare, Mad Hatter, the sleepy Dormouse and grinning Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, the dreadful Queen of Hearts, and a host of other unusual creatures. Sir John Tenniel's complete original illustrations bring the story and all the characters to life in this beloved classic that has delighted readers and listeners since its first publication in 1865. Unabridged Dover (1993) republication of the edition published by the Macmillan Company, New York, 1898. New introductory Note. 42 black-and-white illustrations by Sir John Tenniel.
