THIS STUNNING NEW VERSION OF A CLASSIC IS THE BEST WAY TO ENTER WONDERLAND . . . WITHOUT ACTUALLY FALLING DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE.
Alice in Wonderland is one of the most wondrous, truly original stories ever written—filled with magical and marvelous happenings. On its 150th anniversary in 2015, Lewis Carroll’s tale of a world gone topsy-turvy gets a unique picture-book retelling of the beginning of Alice’s journey, with elegantly simplified text that keeps all of the astonishing adventures and wide-eyed amazement of the original. What a wonderful Introduction for young children to many of the classic Carroll characters - Alice and The White Rabbit, the Blue Caterpillar, Bill the Lizard and more. Many of the most famous phrases are here— like "Curiouser and curiouser" and "Oh dear, oh dear, I shall be too late" to prepare youngsters for the time they’re ready to read the whole book in its original form.
Award-winning, bestselling artist Eric Puybaret creates an enchanting and magical Wonderland that looks like no other interpretation. Every spread in this magnificently produced volume is rich in charm, gloriously colorful, yet fresh and modern. From the extraordinary White Rabbit in his brilliantly red suit to the timelessly graceful young heroine, this is the Alice today’s young children can relate to. It’s the perfect, glorious introduction to a classic, a taste of what magic awaits them in the future.
