Overview

Lewis Carroll's novels Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (first published in 1865 and 1871, respectively) have entertained readers young and old for more than a century. Their magical worlds, amusing characters, clever dialogue, and playfully logical illogic epitomize the wit and whimsy of Carroll's writing.
 
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland transports you down the rabbit-hole into a wondrous realm that is home to a White Rabbit, a March Hare, a Mad Hatter, a tea-drinking Dormouse, a grinning Cheshire-Cat, the Queen of Hearts and her playing-card retainers, and all manner of marvelous creatures. Through the Looking-Glass is your passport to a topsy-turvy world on the other side of the mirror, where you have to run fast just to stay in place, memory works backwards, and it is possible to believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast. Both stories feature the classic illustrations of John Tenniel in full color. 
 
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics for children. It features classic illustrations, an elegant bonded-leather binding, a ribbon bookmark, and distinctive gilt edging. It will provide hours of enjoyment for readers of all ages.

This book was perfect for my best friend's baby shower. She has been a lifelong fan of Alice In Wonderland, and I wanted to get her a beautiful copy that she can read to her daughter and that she can read on her own one day when she grows up as her first Alice book. For less than ten dollars, it was such a great buy and got a wonderful reaction when she opened it. It being a beautiful pink hardcover with illustrations and silver edges and a ribbon bookmark, it looked like I spent way more than I did. Couldn't be more happy!

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland--or simply, Alice in Wonderland, is universally acknowledged to be of a children's classic--perhaps the first in England. Barnes and Noble collectible editions have printed several Alice's Adventures in Wonderland leather bound editions, and this edition is most suited for young children. Unlike the other larger editions, this is sized to fit with the other small and childish classics, for those who collect children's classics. It is also meant for those who only wish to read Lewis Carroll's Alice books, rather than purchasing the Complete Works of Lewis Carroll, which is quite large and heavy. This edition also comes in color, unlike the previous editions, which should be amusing for children as they read it. I personally recommend any collectible edition for Alice fans; the leather bound classics are all beautiful and the works it portrays are literature that has had an impact on history--every book in the series deserves to be placed onto the shelf of every home.

I got this book as a present for my mother to replace her old and misplaced copy of this story, so I am not able to open the shrink wrap and see the inside, but the outside cover is gorgeous! I am so pleased with how it looks and the quality of the cover which includes the colors, the engraving, and the beautiful artwork. The edges of the pages have a very nice silver sheen. The the size of the book is perfect as it's not too large and heavy, but it's not too small either. Even though I can't open it up and see the pages myself, I am very pleased that it includes the illustrations to the story and that they are in color. I can't wait to give it to her. I'm so in love with it, I may have to order one for myself!

It was wonderful reading this with my son. We laughed and wondered together, and we discussed the peculiarities of Wonderland at length. My son was delighted with the riddle, and we tried to figure it out together. An amazing experience.

Beautifully presented, collectors edition of an excellent seemingly non-sense book that connects life and growing up with fiction and dreamy scenarios in a beautiful way. Although it might seem like meaning is not to be found in this book, on a closer look you will find plenty of it in the purest possible ways. Highly recommended for adults with a knack for enjoying and recognizing sheer madness.

Super cute cover - the last review was stupid and not even relevant to the book here. I love it!

Barnes and Noble, please stop putting new covers on the leatherbound classics that you have already released. It is a waste since there are so many other books you could release in this form. Here are some titles I would love to see. The Brothers Karamazov The Lord of the Rings The Hobbit Middlemarch 1984 and Animal Farm The Chronicles of Prydain

Beautiful cover.

This is a beautifully made book - Tenniel illustrations in gentle colors, well-designed, readable type with plenty of white space, a ribbon marker, silver edges. It is a very pretty and readable book, not just for children, but for those of us with elderly eyes who want to reread this old favorite.
