Chris Riddell’s brilliant full-colour illustrated Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in a sumptuous hardback and jacketed edition. A perfect gift for families, children and all fans of this much-loved favourite classic. First published by Macmillan more than 150 years ago, Lewis Carroll’s iconic story of a girl’s journey into a world of tea parties, talking caterpillars, white rabbits and nonsense has been loved and enjoyed by generations of children.
This edition presents Lewis Carroll’s complete text, with illustrations from Costa Award- and Kate Greenaway Medal-winner, and cartoonist for the Observer, Chris Riddell. Published 200 years after the birth of Alice’s first illustrator, Sir John Tenniel, also the political cartoonist of his time, Chris Riddell’s illustrations set a new bar of excellence with his unique, rich and evocative interpretation of Carroll’s world.
With the curious, quick-witted Alice at its heart, readers will not only rediscover characters such as the charming White Rabbit, the formidable Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter and the grinning Cheshire Cat but will find fresh and wonderful creations of these characters by a true master of his art; images that will live in our hearts and minds for generations to come.
