Lewis Carroll is one of the world's best-loved writers. His immortal Wonderland and delightful nonsense verses have enchanted generations of children and adults alike. The wit and imagination, the wisdom, sense of absurdity and sheer fun which fill his books shine just as clearly from the many letters he wrote. '...each is a miniature Wonderland... They reveal a truly delightful man...the combination of intense goodness and unselfishness with a magic, nonsense wit is unique'. The Scotsman '...a magnificent collection of delightful and entertaining letters reflecting all that was embraced in that remarkable character...all his charm, inventive fun, wisdom, generosity, kindliness and inventive mind'. Walter Tyson, Oxford Times.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"...each [letter] is a miniature Wonderland...They reveal a truly delightful man...the combination of intense goodness and unselfishness with a magic, nonsense wit is unique" The Scotsman

"In the letters as in the 'Alice' stories Carroll drew from a bottomless well of humour and nonsense" Sunday Times

"A glass key back into that wonderland to which he never lost the passport" Daily Mail

"...a magnificent collection of delightful and entertaining letters reflecting all that was embraced in that remarkable character...all his charm, inventive fun, wisdom, generosity, kindliness and inventive mind" Oxford Times

"Carroll's letters to children are often just as good as the Alice books precisely because they stick the knife in; as you read them you sense that he was imagining and enjoying what the parents might be thinking. Playfulness is shadowed by danger and perversion, which is one reason you might want to play." London Review of Books
