First Foreman-illustrated edition. Two-time Greenaway Medal-winning artist Michael Foreman studied Charles Dodson’s (Lewis Carroll) original photographs of the real Alice before embarking on this project. The result is a bold, mischievous, and very real character that is surprisingly modern. As Foreman notes, young Alice Liddell “looked ready to break out of the Victorian photograph and run free.”
