Puffin Classics - the world's favourite stories - relaunched with exciting new covers. You never know where you'll find yourself in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll!Join Alice on her weird and wonderful journey, where nothing is quite as it seems. When Alice steps through the looking-glass, she enters a very strange world of chess pieces and nursery rhyme characters such as Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the angry Red Queen.
Nothing is what it seems and, in fact, through the looking-glass, everything is distorted. Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-98), grew up in Cheshire in the village of Daresbury, the son of a parish priest.
He was a brilliant mathematician, a skilled photographer and a meticulous letter and diary writer.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, inspired by Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church in Oxford, was published in 1865, followed by Through the Looking-Glass in 1871.
He wrote numerous stories and poems for children including the nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark and fairy stories Sylvie and Bruno. The book includes a behind-the-scenes journey, including an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more..
