Alice is feeling bored and drowsy while sitting on the riverbank with her older sister, who is reading a book with no pictures or conversations. She then notices a White Rabbit wearing a waistcoat and pocket watch, talking to itself as it runs past. She follows it down a rabbit hole, but suddenly falls a long way to a curious hall with many locked doors of all sizes. Glass House: Alice is playing with a white kitten and a black kitten the offspring of Dinah, Alice's cat in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland—when she ponders what the world is like on the other side of a mirror's reflection. Climbing up onto the fireplace mantel, she pokes at the wall-hung mirror behind the fireplace and discovers, to her surprise, that she is able to step through it to an alternative world. In this reflected version of her own house, she finds a book with looking-glass poetry, "Jabberwocky", whose reversed printing she can read only by holding it up to the mirror.

Emerging in several different versions during the author's lifetime, Lewis Carroll's Alice novels have a publishing history almost as magical and mysterious as the stories themselves. Zoe Jaques and Eugene Giddens offer a detailed and nuanced account of the initial publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and investigate how their subsequent transformations through print, illustration, film, song, music videos, and even stamp-cases and biscuit tins affected the reception of these childhood favourites. The authors consider issues related to the orality of the original tale and its impact on subsequent transmission, the differences between the manuscripts and printed editions, and the politics of writing and publishing for children in the 1860s. In addition, they take account of Carroll's own responses to the books' popularity, including his writing of major adaptations and a significant body of meta-textual commentary, and his reactions to the staging of Alice in Wonderland. Attentive to the child reader, how changing notions of childhood identity and needs affected shifting narratives of the story, and the representation of the child's body by various illustrators, the authors also make a significant contribution to childhood studies.

This Top Five Classics edition of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland includes: • The complete texts of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass • John Tenniel’s 92 original illustrations, including 35 in color • The Hunting of the Snark, with Henry Holiday’s 10 original illustrations • An informative introduction, author bio, and helpful notes Originally written and hand-drawn from 1862 to 1864 by Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson) for 10-year-old Alice Liddell, the daughter of Dodgson’s Oxford college dean, the manuscript “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground” would become, with the help of John Tenniel’s beautiful and humorous illustrations, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, published by Macmillan in 1865 in Britain and the U.S. The book, at turns silly and satiric, gentle and wild, would quickly become beloved around the world by children and adults, and spawn the classic sequel Through the Looking-Glass (1871) and the immortal nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark (1876). The author, a shy mathematics professor called Charles Dodgson, would become internationally famous and ever after remembered by his pen name, Lewis Carroll. The books have never gone out of print and over nearly two centuries have spawned countless offshoots and adaptations—books, artwork, plays, games, and movies. This Top Five Classics edition of the fully illustrated Alice books presents the stories the way they were meant to be enjoyed.
