Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

By Lewis Carroll
Illustrated by Robert Ingpen

A brand-new picture book edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, written by Lewis Carroll and illustrated by award-winning Australian illustrator Robert Ingpen, for young children.

From the moment that Alice tumbles down the rabbit hole, she leads us on a fantastical, dream-like journey where we meet a host of unforgettable characters. Retold here in abridged form for children to read as well as to enjoy as a bedtime story, Alice’s adventures are brought to life by the beautiful illustrations of award-winning artist Robert Ingpen.

  • Includes a 10,000-word adapted text of this timeless classic.
  • This edition includes more than 50 stunning illustrations by Robert Ingpen, each reflecting his unique style and extraordinary imagination in visualising this enchanting story.
  • "Lewis Carroll, we could say, created the whole of children’s literature with these wonderful stories. Placing a child at the centre of a narrative that was entirely free of instruction, entirely devoted to delight, was a stroke of genius. The Alices are the greatest nonsense ever written, and far greater, in my view, than most sense." Philip Pullman
