Alice in Wonderland5 star

It’s a big story55


Inspired me5 star

Inspired me to make my own illustrations. A story I can’t remember reading before, heard about since school and finally read with pleasure.55


“Curiously ” amazing book5 star

I recommend the original Alice in wonderland (this book) to ages 10+. It is an amazing tale or how Alice would put it “a curious sight to see”. It is a dream Alice has while in her sisters lap. She chases a white rabbit down a hole to Wonderland and meets the rabbit and the Mad Hatter, the Duchess and pig baby, and the Queen and deck of cards. She goes to see the animals at a trial then she grows and grows as she wakes up. This is the best classic I have ever read. I highly recommend it. There is a easier read for younger kids I believe if your youngsters want to join Alice in Wonderland.55

It’s a good fine book!3 star

I love this story it’s fun reading it but why did I rate it 3 stars? It’s because first for me 3 stars means a good book four amazing 5 it’s the best now this is a good one because I’m not a real fan of fictional stories this is all fiction but it’s fun but also it’s sometimes not that interesting but fun to read something like that about magic and stuff and you can call it also a mystery story!!! Why? Because sometimes when she wants to do something it’s like she wants to solve the mystery if it so I would think what would she do and stuff and I love mystery books this is not completely mystery but you know.....I still like this book!35

This book is missing some of the original text.15


Perfect5 star

Say what you want, but having pictures along with the words (especially in a book such as this) really are nice. Sure there's a free copy available just next door, but this actually gives the reader a storybook feel. (For example, the mouse's tale actually is shaped like a tail) And for the parts that may seem 'extra' confusing, suched as Alices botched recollections of nursery rhymes, there are helpful annotations following that will explain them fully. I dare you not to be completely satisfied with this purchase.55


Beyond expectation4 star

Now I know why John Tenniel drew the Mock Turtle with the head, hind hoofs, and tail of a calf.45


Totally beautiful5 star

Elegant looking. The annotated parts of the book are short and sweet.55
