Puffin Classics: the definitive collection of timeless stories, for every child.
It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then . . .
On an ordinary summer's afternoon, Alice tumbles down a hole and an extraordinary adventure begins. In a strange world with even stranger characters, she meets a grinning cat and a rabbit with a pocket watch, joins a Mad Hatter's Tea Party, and plays croquet with the Queen! Lost in this fantasy land, Alice finds herself growing more and more curious by the minute...
Inspiring artists from Taylor Swift to Salvador Dali, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has earned its place as one of the greatest classics of all time.

"Chic...The pretty face of Anna Bond's Alice looks continually astonished, and even in the scene where her neck grows freakishly serpentine, the heroine remains comely. Elegant and unthreatening, Ms. Bond's pictures abound with so many flowers and curling vines that Wonderland seems a much nicer place than perhaps we remembered."-Wall Street Journal
