"Young and old alike will easily embrace Oxenbury s Alice, who seemsboth old-fashioned and modern, and comfortable in worlds on both sides of the mirror." Booklist (starred review) Helen Oxenbury s Alice s Adventures in Wonderland set a new standard for contemporary editions of Lewis Carroll s beloved classic, and this companion is illustrated with equal intimacy, warmth, and charm. Here again is Alice, dressed in her bright blue jumper and ready for adventure. All it takes is a bit of curiosity about the world reversed in the mirror, and suddenly Alice is interacting with all manner of comical and magical characters Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the lion and the unicorn, and a game board of chess pieces come to life. Helen Oxenbury s incomparable line drawings, sepia illustrations, and full-color paintings give today s children an accessible view into Lewis Carroll s timeless nonsense."

About the Author

LEWIS CARROLL is the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898). He wrote ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND for the amusement of eleven-year-old Alice Liddell and her two sisters, who were the daughters of the dean of Christ Church College, Oxford, where Dodgson taught mathematics. The book was published in 1865, and its first companion volume, THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE, followed in 1871. HELEN OXENBURY is one of today's foremost illustrators. She is the winner of England's Kate Greenaway Medal as well as many other important awards. In addition to ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, her books for Candlewick include BIG MOMMA MAKES THE WORLD, FARMER DUCK, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, and SO MUCH. She says, "I had no plans to illustrate ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS, but after reading it again for pure pleasure, I couldn't resist the temptation to try to bring to life the humorously eccentric characters that Carroll created." From the Hardcover edition.
