Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was unsure if both books I purchased this for my daughter for Christmas I was actually looking for stand alone Alice Through the Looking Glass. I was quite surprised at the size of the book. My daughter indicates that both stories are in book and in addition some poems by the author. She enjoyed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Absolutely Intelligent Read So there's not much to say , everyone knows Alice in wonderland from when we were all little kids, but in university our Philosophy professor brought this book to class and started reading parts of it that was totally mind boggling and the use of words and riddles that Lewis Carroll wrote were absolutely amazing and brilliant, which made me realize that this little book, not abridged by the way, was never given the proper read and looking more in depth into as it should be, so I bought this book and I will tell you one thing. Not only does it remind you of your childhood but it also tells you that no matter what age you are, you can always read this book, AND on an ever more important note, this book will leave you thinking just like if you were actually reading a philosophy book, but in a fun and creative way. Definitely recommend this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Oh Dear Written in 1865, this classic is a tale of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by creatures who assume human characteristics. “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late, the Rabbit say to itself…and when he actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket and hurried on and popped down a large hole, curious Alice, went after it never considering how she was to get out again. Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end? She tried to curtsey as she spoke…Ma’am is this new Zealand or Australia?... “Curiouser and curiouser “cried Alice….. Now I’m opening like a largest telescope…Good-bye, feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet…….. When suddenly thump, thump, the rabbit was still in sight as it turned the corner saying…Oh dear! Oh dear! How late it’s getting…” ( from the book) And it goes on and on…and on. Of course the plot and the narrative are totally nonsensical but if you let your imagination roam and let yourself fall into its spell you will be transported along with Alice to a magical world with its memorable characters such as Mad Hatter having tea parties, and the terrifying Queen of Hearts threatening to behead everyone. You will meet Cheshire the cat, the turtle, the Duchess, Bill the Lizard, the Mouse, the Dodo, the Lory and Caterpillar and many more weird characters all the while growing and shrinking from drinking lotions and potions saying “Drink me”. Ultimately you will move around very fast and achieve nothing….till you wake up and realize this was all but a dream…. This adventure has inspired numerous comic books, films, TV movies through countless adaptations and hundreds of editions of the book throughout the years. This story was one of the freebees on my e-reader so I decided to give it a go. Early in I missed the visual aspect I have always associated with Alice, but as my imagination kicked in and the characters came alive, it became easier to understand the humour and wits that played within the words and admit it was a refreshing experience. However my fondest memories take me back to the animated version created by the late Walter Disney and his Studios. Who ever said a picture is worth a thousand words really knew how to leave a lasting impression in a little girl’s mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! I love Alice in Wonderland and I just picked up this book to replace my other copy of the two stories which has been used so much its falling apart! The stories are ones that should be shared with the world! Lovely copy too! Small, and can be stored away in any bag for those of us who read on the go!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One of the best children's story I've ever read,...as an adult. Lewis Carrol's erie and delightful children's story is a great piece of canon literature. This edition is illustrated by Cinzia Ratto. The modern artwork and large typeface make it a great edition for children, especially those who've just seen the new Tim Burton movie and are now curious to read the book. This edition doesn't contain "Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There," the sequil to this work. Instead, this edition contains another work of Carroll's, "The Hunting of the Snark." It's one I've never read, but I am definitely going to pick through now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great The book was great reading-it contained the entire story. The pictures were accurate representations of what was described by the author. The hard cover and the ribboned book mark make the book a great buy that will last for a very long time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soso My first impressions of this book were that it was like reading C.S. Lewis on cheap drugs. The events are complete non sequiturs and the changes in plot are worse. It appears to be a spoiled child wandering in a world she does not understand, nor is willing to learn about - unlike Lucy in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe who seeks to understand the local customs and circumstances. The book is very easy to read but it leaves distaste in my literary mouth. I know it is considered a classic but I just do not see it, and if I did not have to read it for school I would not have bothered to finish it. (First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Work of Art I literally just bought this book and I am sooo thrilled with my purchase! Alice in Wonderland has always been a favorite childhood story of mine, but the way that it is visually presented in this pop-up adaptation, is just incredible. More a collector's item than a children's book, the piece is stunning. I think I've just become both a new pop-up book collector and Robert Sabuda fan :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alice Made Amazing This is an exellent pair of c.d.'s. Includes background music, numerous sound effects and a variety of voices provided by the reader. I reccomend this item to anyone who likes the Alice books or anyone who is searching for a new fantasy book to listen to. Even though I am only ten, I think some young adults may enjoy it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderland is wonderful My daughter and I shared this wonderful story which never gets old. Whether it is your first time reading the story or your tenth, there is always something new to discover or to appreciate. All the strange, humourous, and exciting adventures can be enjoyed on so many levels and by all ages. This is a story to read again and again and to share with someone special, like I did with my daughter.

About the Author

Born in Daresbury, England,in 1832, Charles Luthwidge Dodgson is better known by his pen mane of Lewis Carroll. He became a minister of the Church of England and a lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was the author, under his own name, of An Elementary Treatise on Determinants (1867), Symbolic Logic (1896), and other scholarly treatises which would hardly have given him a place in English literature. Charles Dodgson might have been completely forgotten but for the work of his alter ego, Lewis Carroll. Lewis Carroll, shy in the company of adults, loved children and knew and understood the world of the imagination in which the most sensitive of them lived. So he put the little girl Alice Liddell into a dream-story and found himself famous as the author of Alice in Wonderland (1865). Through the Looking Glass followed in 1871. In recent years Carroll has been taken quite seriously as a major literary artist for adults as well. His works have come under the scrutiny of critics who have explained his permanent attractiveness in terms of existential and symbolic drama: The Alice books dramatize psychological realities in symbolic terms, being commentary on the nature of the human predicament rather than escape from it. In addition to his writing, Carroll was also a pioneering photographer, and he took many pictures of young children, especially girls, with whom he seemed to empathize.
