First Edition Thus.One hot summer's day Alice tumbles down, down, down a rabbit hole and finds herself in Wonderland, where everything is topsy-turvy, upside down, and wrong-way round. Here begins a series of fantastical adventures as Alice's body GROWS and shrinks, she swims in a pool of her own tears, attends the maddest of tea parties, and meets such iconic and beloved characters as the smiling Cheshire Cat, the hookah-smoking Caterillar; and Humpty Dumpty. Carroll's classic is perhaps the best-loved of all children's stories. This beautiful edition features new artwork for this beloved classic by Kate Greenaway Medalist, Anthony Browne.
