Alice's Adventures In Wonderland And Through The Looking Glass: Pantone Classic




Color your bookshelf with Puffin + Pantone! A collection of classic novels paired with their perfect color match.

Weary of her storybook, one 'without pictures or conversations.' young and imaginative Alice follows a hasty hare underground—where she comes face-to-face with some of the strangest adventures and most fantastic characters in all literature. The ugly Duchess, the mad Hatter, the weeping Mock Turtle, the diabolical Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire-Cat-each more eccentric than the last—could have come only from that master of sublime nonsense Lewis Carroll. In penning this brilliant burlesque of children's literature, this farcical satire of rigid Victorian society, this arresting parody of the fears, anxieties, and complexities of growing up, Carroll was one of the few adult writers to enter successfully the children's world of make-believe, where the impossible becomes possible, the unreal, real, and where the heights of adventure are limited only by the depths of imagination.

With an Introduction by Martin Gardner and a New Afterword by Jeffrey Meyes and the Original Illustrations by John Tenniel
