Description

Originally written for 'the real Alice', Alice Liddell, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has become one of the world's best-loved children's classics. This wonderful journey into Alice's imagination has fascinated and delighted readers of all ages. Although the story was written for a real child, Tenniel's original illustrations were quite different to the dark-haired Alice Liddell. Michael has returned to the photographs taken by Lewis Carroll of the 'real' Alice, and created a wonderful imaginative progression of illustrations, moving from sepia-toned realistic images, to the vivid colours and magical landscapes of Wonderland. Michael's Alice is bold, curious, dark-haired and distinctive - very different from some other contemporary Alices!

Author Biography

Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) was the pen-name of Charles Dodgson. After graduating from Christ Church College in Oxford became a mathematics teacher there. He was happiest in the company of children, and his favourite was Alice Liddell, daughter of the Dean of Christ Church. A keen amateur photographer, he took many pictures of Alice and her sisters and they often accompanied him on outings around the town and boat trips on the river. The original manuscript still exists and is on display in the British Museum. Michael Foreman's numerous books for children have earned him widespread recognition as one of the world's leading illustrators. He has worked on a vast range of children's books, and has collaborated with Terry Jones on all of his books for children. He also writes and illustrates his own books, including War Boy and War Game, winners of the Kate Greenaway Award and Smarties Book Prize respectively, and After the War was Over. More recently he has illustrated The Knight and the Squire and The Lady and the Squire, both by Terry Jones. He has also illustrated the classic stories Peter Pan and Wendy and The Wind in the Willows, both published by Chrysalis Children's Books.
