Book Excerpt :

"Off with her head!" yells the Queen of Hearts, one of the many peculiar creatures Alice encounters after falling down a rabbit hole and into an absurd fantasy world of Mad Tea Parties, nonsensical trials, and talking animals. Published In 1865, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland became an instant success, and author Lewis Carroll broke ground with his unique take on children’s stories: Instead of the overly simplistic and sometimes dry tales that characterized the genre in the Victorian age, Carroll introduced a book that didn’t look down on its audience, and one that – to this day – is enjoyed by children and adults alike. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been translated into 176 languages, and adapted to the screen close to 20 times, most notably by Tim Burton in the 2010 feature film that saw Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Helena Bonham Carter as the unforgettable Queen of Hearts. Lewis Caroll, pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, (1832-1898), was a British mathematician, photographer, and children’s book author. The idea for his most famous work, 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', came to Carroll when he was on a boat with friends, having to entertain three young girls, one of whose name was Alice. Despite his success as a children’s book author, Carroll considered himself, first and foremost, a man of science and mathematics.

Book Short Summary:

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' is the best known work of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 - 1898) – better known by his pen name, 'Lewis Carroll'. Telling the tale of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by surreal and anthropomorphic creatures, the book was a huge commercial success on its initial publication in 1865. It was followed by its sequel, 'Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There', in 1871. The books play at the heart of logical problems and literary nonsense – giving the narrative lasting popularity with adults and children alike. The story is accompanied by a series of dazzling, full-colour, Milo Winter illustrations. Winter (1888 - 1956), is best-loved for his animal drawings, and was among the artists working in the later stages of the 'Golden Age'. His work can be identified from its masterful accuracy, humorous touches, personality, and attention to detail. Winter produced artwork for such well-known tales as Aesop's Fables, Arabian Nights, Alice in Wonderland, and Gulliver's Tales. Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Lewis Carroll's captivating storytelling. This book, 'Alice in Wonderland - with Milo Winter illustrations' forms part of our 'Pook Press' imprint, celebrating the golden age of illustration in children's literature.

Alice Nielsen was a magnetic star of Broadway, opera, and concerts. Her mom an Irish musician, dad a Danish troubadour. Born in Nashville, raised in Kansas City, young Alice sang on streets until she took the vaudeville trail to San Francisco. She starred in three bespoke Victor Herbert hits before crossing to opera in 1901 Italy, coached by Bevignini. She debuted in Naples then London's Covent Garden in Mozart, and Puccini with Caruso. She gave joint drama-opera productions with Duse. Returning to America, Nielsen joined Nordica to create a touring opera company regarded as superior to the Met.

Book Short Summary:

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to “Alice in Wonderland”) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Dodgson transposed his mother’s maiden name for a first name and then used the French equivalent of his first name, Carroll, as a last name. Indeed, this edition, illustrated by the great Arthur Rackham, is considered to be the definitive edition of the story influencing the look and feel of “Alice” films and stage plays alike, and it is this edition that so many think of and refer to when discussing this wonderful story. Herein are the original 12 chapters richly illustrated with 13 full-page colour plates and 13 black and white pen and ink drawings. In addition, each chapter commences with an illuminated drop capital making for a wonderfully sumptuous edition. The story tells of a young girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a world of fantasy populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, which has given the story a lasting popularity with adults and children alike. It is considered to be one of the best examples in the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course, structure, characters, and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre. The twelve chapters are: I. DOWN THE RABBIT-HOLE II. THE POOL OF TEARS III. A CAUCUS-RACE AND A LONG TALE IV. THE RABBIT SENDS IN A LITTLE BILL V. ADVICE FROM A CATERPILLAR VI. PIG AND PEPPER VII. A MAD TEA-PARTY VIII. THE QUEEN'S CROQUET-GROUND IX. THE MOCK TURTLE'S STORY X. THE LOBSTER QUADRILLE XI. WHO STOLE THE TARTS? XII. ALICE'S EVIDENCE ================ HISTORICAL NOTE In the 150+ years since Lewis Carroll first told the story of Wonderland to the real-life Alice, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has attracted a number of stunning visual interpretations ranging from Salvador Dalí to Yayoi Kusama, but none more influential than thos

His most famous writings are Alices Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, and the nonsense poems, The Hunting of the Snark and Jabberwocky.
