Books
More than 70 original illustrations by Robert Ingpen complement the complete and unabridged text in this edition published to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's first Alice book in November 1865. When Alice steps through the looking-glass in the drawing room one drowsy winter afternoon, she finds herself in a peculiar, topsy-turvy world where chess pieces walk about, flowers talk, and nothing is quite as it seems. Alice is caught up in a bizarre chess game and encounters some rather eccentric characters...including the argumentative Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Lion and the Unicorn, the nonsensical White Queen, and the quick-tempered Red Queen. The story features the poems "The Walrus and the Carpenter" and "Jabberwocky" which have become just as well known as Alice's adventures themselves. The award-winning artist Robert Ingpen has illustrated Lewis Carroll's enchanting sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in this sumptuous volume. Full of anarchic humour, witty rhymes, and sparkling word play, it will delight new readers and devoted Alice fans alike.
