Editorial Reviews Review > _"And what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures orconversations?"_ Taking to heart his charming, insatiably curious heroine's words, LewisCarroll worked many long hours (days, months...) with illustrator Sir JohnTenniel to create the most perfect pictures imaginable for what were to becomeinstant classics: _Alice's Adventures in Wonderland_ and _Through the Looking-Glass_. When thinking about Alice and her dreamy surrealistic adventures downthe rabbit hole and behind the looking-glass, who can help picturing thegolden-haired girl in her lilac dress and striped stockings, gazing up at theCheshire Cat or arguing with Tweedledum and Tweedledee? Tenniel's drawingsremained black and white for over 40 years until 1911, when eight prints ineach book were hand colored. Now, for the first time, every remainingillustration has been colored, making these the first editions to feature allof the original art in full color. Traditionalists need not worry: coloristDiz Wallis colored proofs taken from Tenniel's carefully preserved woodblocks,remaining faithful to his original drawings. The beautiful tones of these newhardcover editions look as natural as can be; they could just as easily befrom the 19th century. (Ages 9 and older) _--Emilie Coulter_ _--This textrefers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title._ Review "A work of glorious intelligence and literary devicesNonsense becomes a formof higher sense" -Malcolm Bradbury "_Alice in Wonderland_ is one of the top 25 books of all time. I always lovedthe book and I always loved the various characters, the psychedelic nature ofit and kind-of odd allegorical stories inside stories. I always thought it wasbeautiful." -Jonny Depp "Wonderland and the world through the Looking Glass were, I always knew,different from other imagined worlds. Nothing could be changed, althoughthings in the story were always changingCarroll moves his readers as he moveschess pieces and playing cards." -A. S. Byatt "It would not have occurred to me even to suspect that the "children's tale"was in brilliant ways coded to be read by adults and was in fact an Englishclassic, a universally acclaimed intellectual tour de force and what might bedescribed as a psychological/anthropological dissection of Victorian England.It seems not to have occurred to me that the child-Alice of drawing rooms,servants, tea and crumpets and chess, was of a distinctly different backgroundthan my own. I must have been the ideal reader: credulous, unjudging, eager,thrilled. I knew only that I believed in Alice, absolutely." -Joyce Carol Oates "The _Alices_ are the greatest nonsense ever written, and far greater, in myview, than most sense." -Philip Pullman _--This text refers to the Paperback edition._ See all Editorial Reviews
