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.
