The story of Alice and her remarkable adventures in Wonderland has enthralled generations of children since it was first published in 1865. Lewis Carroll's timeless masterpiece, now 150 years old, is richly visual in its telling and in this beautiful anniversary edition, Anthony Browne's dazzling illustrations are perfectly paired with the surreal quality of Carroll's writing.
