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, "with no pictures or conversations?" (from the first line)

From the Publisher:
A young girl's adventures and sometime fanciful, bizarre, whimsical and terrifying encounters are presented in this richly illustrated edition of the famous classic for readers of all ages.Whether it’s to add to a collection of classics or to introduce new readers to Alice, this handsome large-format edition is a must-have for all ages. Lewis Carroll’s original text is illustrated as never before by Oleg Lipchenko to create a spectacular gift book. Sure to transport everyone down the rabbit hole and into the extraordinary realm of Carroll’s imagination, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, invites all readers to join the tea party and take their chances with the Mad Hatter, the Mock Turtle, and the boisterous Queen of Hearts.
Annotation:
As he escorted the three young daughters of a colleague on a trip up the river Isis, Lewis Carroll invented ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, the story of a little girl who tumbles down a rabbit hole. Full of such wonderfully eccentric characters as the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, the book is simultaneously a political allegory, a parody of Victorian children's literature, a fairy tale, a dream, and a child's chronicle of growing up.Lewis Carroll's already twisted tale of Alice's strange adventures gets wrenched a little further in this edition featuring the "cute-esque" (that's cute and grotesque) illustrations of punk artist Camille Rose Garcia, whose acknowledged influences include Walt Disney, Philip K. Dick, Henry Darger and the Dead Kennedys. Garcia's version of Alice is a vision of sinister innocence, complete with black eyeliner and lipstick, and a perpetual aura composed of the spirals of her golden curls and apron strings.
Author Bio
Lewis Carroll
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) was an Anglican deacon and a tutor in mathematics--his great love--at Oxford. All his life, he was fond of puzzles and word games, and he published several mathematical treatises. He was also an amateur photographer, specializing in portraits of children which, in the late 20th century, are considered somewhat ambiguous. His great works, ALICE IN WONDERLAND (1865) and THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS (1872) were written to amuse the daughters of a friend; Lewis Carroll himself, though he loved children, never produced any. Carroll's books are full of wonders, and are often quoted; perhaps the most famous quote is something the Red Queen says in THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: "Now here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"Seibold's obsessive inclusion of excessive graphic minutiae throughout his tableaus is what makes his ALICE totally engrossing and worth reading more than once." - Steven Heller 11/16/2003
