Now I've read this story many times and know all of how Alice fell down the rabbit hole but it wasn't until recently that I realised my children hadn't.
They've seen the Disney film of course but that's no substitute for the book in my opinion. So I was thrilled when I received a gorgeous new edition of the book in the post.
Republished by Barnes & Noble, this hardback copy will look stunning on any bookshelf. Deep purple leatherbound cover, silver leafed pages and a built in golden coloured bookmark, it looks spectacularly magical before you even open it up.
Inside you will discover the original stories. No lack of funny characters and wonderous adventures.
Both stories are brought further to life with the accompanying illustrations. John Tenniels drawings manage to portray all the humour and craziness that the book wants to you imagine.
This is a story that I feel will forever remain popular amongst adults and children. Utter nonsense at times, it is fantasy at its best with characters that will stick in your brain.
From the Cheshire Cat, to the Mad Hatter and not forgetting Alice herself. Prepare to find all things weird and peculiar and let the unlogical take over.
If you haven't got your own copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland then this should be the one you purchase.
