Walker Illustrated Classics is a wonderful series that brings together some of the best loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists.
For over a hundred years, Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll's classic story of logic and lunacy has delighted young and old alike. More abundantly illustrated than previous editions, this award-winning interpretation is full of warmth and humour. The whole approach is contemporary and accessible - Alice herself is a child of today – casually dressed, personable, spirited. In Helen Oxenbury's hands, the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland is a wondrous place indeed!
Lewis Carroll's most famous works are ‘Alice's Adventures in Wonderland’ (published in 1865) and the sequel ‘Alice Through the Looking-Glass’, which contained the nonsense poem classic ‘The Jabberwocky’ (published in 1872). He died on 14 July, 1898. Helen Oxenbury's numerous books for children include the Smarties Book Prize-winning Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell; We're Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen; as well as her classic board books for babies.
