"Alice in Wonderland" is one of the best-loved children's stories in the world and has been translated into nearly fifty languages, and in several cases more than once. Sir John Tenniel's beautiful illustrations have always been an integral part of the book's magic, and for this edition of "Alice" and "Through the Looking Glass" one of Britain's leading colourists, Barbara Frith, has been specially commissioned to work her magic.
The result is a book of great beauty in which Alice meets the savagely violent Queen, the lachrymose Mock Turtle, the laconic Cheshire Cat and the hookah-smoking caterpillar, each as surprising and outlandish as the next. "Through the Looking-Glass" continues Alice's bizarre adventures, and she meets more outlandish creations including the Red and the White Queens, Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the gentle White Knight.
