With an Introduction and Notes by Michael Irwin, Professor of English Literature, University of Kent at Canterbury This selection of Carroll's works includes Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, both containing the famous illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. No greater books for children have ever been written. The simple language, dreamlike atmosphere, and fantastical characters are as appealing to young readers today as ever they were. Meanwhile, however, these apparently simple stories have become recognised as adult masterpieces, and extraordinary experiments, years ahead of their time, in Modernism and Surrealism. Through wordplay, parody and logical and philosophical puzzles, Carroll engenders a variety of sub-texts, teasing, ominous or melancholy. For all the surface playfulness there is meaning everywhere. The author reveals himself in glimpses.

HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics. 'Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"' So begins the tale of Alice, following a curious White Rabbit down a rabbit-hole and falling into Wonderland. A fantastical place, where nothing is quite as it seems: animals talk, nonsensical characters confuse, Mad Hatter's throw tea parties and the Queen plays croquet. Alice's attempts to find her way home become increasingly bizarre, infuriating and amazing in turn. A beloved classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has continued to delight readers, young and old for over a century.

This title is suitable for children aged 7 years and up. Nothing's more magical than going down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass with Alice. There, in worlds unlike any other ever created, conventional logic is turned upside down and wrong-way round to enchanting effect. Children will love reading Carroll's many humorous nonsense verses and meeting such unforgettable characters as the Mad Hatter, the Knave of Hearts who steals some tarts, and the grinning Cheshire Cat (in Alice in Wonderland) and Tweedledee, Tweedledum, Humpty Dumpty and the Jabberwock (in Through the Looking Glass).

With fresh new cover artwork, the book is a lovely addition to any bookshelf. The inside illustrations are the originals by Sir John Tenniel, whose drawings for the books add so much to the enjoyment of them.
Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Red Queen and the White Rabbit all make their appearances, and are now familiar figures in writing, conversation and idiom. So too, are Carroll's delightful verses such as 'The Walrus and the Carpenter' and the inspired jargon of that masterly Wordsworthian parody, 'The Jabberwocky'.
Witty, whimsical, and often nonsensical, the fiction of Lewis Carroll takes readers on a trip down the rabbit hole. In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, height is dynamic, caterpillars dole out advice, and a Queen of Hearts playing card orders executions as she plays croquet. Through the Looking-Glass continues the adventure when Alice steps through a mirror into another magical world where she can become queen if she can only get to the other side of a colossal chessboard. Nothing sets the mood for penning a new story like the comfort of stories that have transcended time and culture. With the text of these two classics serving as the journal lines in tiny type, A Novel Journal: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is sure to spark your creativity whether you're journaling or drafting the next classic. Packaged with a deluxe Svepa cover, brilliant endpapers, colored edges, and matching elastic band, this book is a great gift or collectible for admirers of Carroll's work. And the compact size makes this journal easy to slip into a purse, briefcase, or backpack so you can record and revisit your thoughts on the go.
