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




'So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible' Alice in Wonderland

Alice is one of the most beloved characters of English writing. A bright and inquisitive child, one boring summer afternoon she follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole. At the bottom she finds herself in a bizarre world full of strange creatures, and attends a very strange tea party and croquet match. This immensely witty and unique story mixes satire and puzzles, comedy and anxiety, to provide an astute depiction of the experience of childhood.

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

“A book of wonder and nonsense laced with lethal wit”

Guardian

“Without these two books in my childhood I doubt whether my imagination would have developed at all”

Kate Atkinson

“A marvellous confidence in the primacy of the imagination”

Will Self

“Two nightmare destinations. Wonderland and Looking Glass. The more I read these books, the darker they shine.. Carroll operates on language like a cruel, crazy surgeon”

Jeff Noon

“Precise, dream-like, subversive”

Quentin Blake, Independent on Sunday

“The clue to the enduring fascination and greatness of the Alice books lies in language. . .. It is play, and word-play, and its endless intriguing puzzles continue to reveal themselves long after we have ceased to be children”

A. S. Byatt

“Only Lewis Carroll has shown us the world upside down the way a child sees it, and has made us laugh as children laugh”

Virginia Woolf
