Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

By Lewis Carroll
Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

A wonderful 150th-anniversary edition of Lewis Carroll's timeless classic, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury in this beautiful award-winning interpretation.

For a century and a half Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll's classic story of logic and lunacy, has delighted young and old alike. Gorgeously illustrated, this award-winning rendition is full of warmth and humour. The whole approach is contemporary and accessible: Alice herself is a child of today – casually dressed, personable, spirited. In Helen Oxenbury's hands, the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland is a wondrous place indeed!

  • An unmissable 150th-anniversary edition of the perennial favourite.
  • Winner of the 1999 Kate Greenaway Medal.
  • "Simply one to own." -- The Times
