The Complete Alice in Wonderland includes both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Though the Looking Glass plus "The Wasp in the Wig" which is a lost chapter from Through the Looking Glass. I believe most of us know the stories whether we had it read to us as children, watched one or several of the various movie adaptations, or read it ourselves to our own children.
This version maintains all the nonsense, whimsy, and fun of the original. The artwork supports the texts and while it doesn't mimic the style of the original John Tenniel art, it does maintain a feel for the time period, a similar color palette, and the whimsy of his work.
It's a lovely work that would be a great addition to any Alice collection, as well as being one that could be shared with children or grandchildren who need a bedtime story or quiet time.
For me it was a nice interlude that brought back many memories of when I first read the stories myself -- and it didn't have anywhere near enough pictures as far as my younger self was concerned. This version has the perfect number of illustrations.
Enjoy Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass all over again with The Complete Alice in Wonderland.
