Book Review: The Complete Alice

25484530

The Complete Alice (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland / Through the Looking-Glass / What Alice Found There) by Lewis Carroll – Hardback, 466 pages – Published July 4th 2015 by Macmillan Children’s Books

Alice in Wonderland has got to be my favourite story. I just love everything about it! Hence why I got this book for Christmas; it’s a really gorgeous book.

I don’t think I need to go into much detail regarding the story; everyone knows Alice in Wonderland! What I will say is that the extra bits are lovely; there are letters from Carroll himself, details about how the story was written and printed, and other notes.

As for the illustrations… I love them! The original Tenniel illustrations are all in full colour, displayed wonderfully throughout the book. It just all looks so gorgeous!

So as I said, I won’t want to go into too much detail. The story is obviously fantastic, and it’s nice to see it all together – even with the “deleted scene” from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. The poems and songs and riddles… Fantastic!

Everything about this book is lovely. The cover, the layout, the red shine around the edge of the pages. Love it! A huge favourite of mine. 5 stars for definite.
