Summary
A little girl falls down a rabbit hole and discovers a world of nonsensical and amusing characters. Alice has two adventures: first she follows a rabbit into a curious world where she meets the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts. In Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There (written 1870; orig. U.S. pub. 1899; St. Martin, 1977; Knopf, 1986; Schocken, 1987; Morrow, 1993), she steps through a mirror into a backward world. Davy and the Goblin, or What Followed Reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, is a related story, written by Charles Edward Carryl (Houghton, 1909, 1920). Alice Through the Needle's Eye is a contemporary sequel written by Gilbert Adair (Dutton, 1985). Barry Moser's illustrations for the 1982 edition were awarded the American Book Award for Pictorial Design, 1983. Anthony Browne's illustrations for the 1988 edition were Highly Commended by the Kate Greenway Medal, 1989: outstanding quality. The two Alice books, Lewis Carroll's masterpieces are ranked by many as peers of the great adult works of English literature. And despite their riches of untranslatable puns, nonsense, and parody, they have been happily translated around the world. The matchless original illustrations by Tenniel share with Carroll's text the glory of making Alice immortal
