EVEN AFTER 150 YEARS "ALICE IN WONDERLAND" IS STILL POPULARThis book is so full of fun and nonsensical chatter it will lighten up your day.I bought this book because this is the 150th anniversary of "Alice In Wonderland." I read this book many timeswhen I was a child. I went online to Amazon Books and found the copy I wanted. The book came right on time, beautiful cover, and paper cover. I put a book cover on the book right away.The paper is heavy, easy for a small child to handle, good for adults to have as a keeper. The colored pictures arebeautiful, vibrant colors, full of life to take a child and even a grown up into the wonderful world of Alice. Acharming book full of beautiful pictures and drawings of whimsical animals and people cards. The wording isexactly as it was when Lewis Carroll wrote the story 150 years ago, no changes, nothing left out.Ms Bond's Rifle Paper Co. has done a great job on this children's classic as do her illustrations and brightlycolored designs. Before I bought the book, I looked into Amazon customers comments about different copies.This is the one I thought best for me.Ms Bond has worked to put this beautiful "Alice in Wonderland" edition together in honor of her son.5Salvador Dal chasing The Girl With The RopeIt is really beautiful edition printed on a high quality paper for any admirer of Alice adventures and/or Dali's art. His paintings illustrate each chapter and are printed on the third page from the beginning of each chapter. It is so thrilling to look at each picture during reading the chapter and trying to figure what and why Dali decided to paint.Dali's art is not everything what this edition has to offer. There are two pieces of introduction which I found very interesting. First one is written by Mark Burstain explaining why the surrealists were so interested in Carroll book and the second one of Thomas Banchoff who actually met with Dali many times and provided us with some of stories about the genius. Both of them helped me better understand the madness of Dali, or as Carroll and the surrealists preferred to address: the wisdom.5Disappointed.I was displeased with this book. My daughter loves Alice and was decorating her nursery with Alice. I wanted the book as a baby gift. I ordered it twice. The first time I thought it was because it was because it was poorly packed. The corners were all bent and white. Nothing I wanted to give as a gift. I tried again, same thing. I decided to try BN. When I received it that way again, I decided it had to be the fault of the printer. Disappointed.2Trapped in dreams. (AmazonClassics Edition)Multiplicity of editions can be frustrating if you want to spend correctly just once. The AmazonClassics edition is a very good edition, almost perfect, it has X-Ray, the original illustrations in a good size, modern typography and a very polished formatting; except one part: there is a beautiful poem/tale, "The Mouse's Tale", in which a mishearing makes Alice to blend tail with tale and the story appears typographically in a quite beautiful shape of a tail, sinuously getting narrower til being as thick as an individual letter. Unfortunately in the AmazonClassics Edition the shape is rather like a sinuous river, it losses its meaning. I checked other kindle edition I have, "Alice in Wonderland: The Complete Collection" edition by Maplewood Books, the illustrations are a bit less clear (at least that was I felt), the formatting, although good, it's not as exemplar as the AmazonClassics Edition but to my tranquility "The Mouse's Tale" is formatted faithful to the original, so I will stick to that complete edition and I won't get the second book, "Through the Looking-Glass," in the AmazonClassics Edition, for fear that it will not express the intentions of the author.Peculiar book. Although built of meaningful blocks of events, as a group they are surreal; if there exists a meaning, is meant for only an initiated in the reasons of the story. For what I read it could be for the amusement of a little girl friend of Lewis Carroll. I love it very much. Weird and all, inscrutable and unfathomable as it is to me at the same time it is exciting and mind blowing. Alice falls into another world, one that changes like a dream but whereas we as actors of our dreams change along them. Instead Alice lives them quite consciously, as one of those old memories of strange events or creatures you saw, in which you are not that sure if it actually happened or, being that fantastic, it was a reverie feed by being in an unfamiliar place.5Unsure of which version?I had a difficult time determing which version was being reviewed in many of these reviews, so I am specifically reviewing the version that is illustrated by Anna Bond. This is a great version to use with younger kids- it has larger print and illustrations on almost every page. If you want to purchase accompanying audio to listen with, just buy the unabridged version and it should be a match.5Not the original textSome of the words are changed from the original. In some cases this eliminating or changing the play on words. It is as though this text was produced by a computer translating it from another language back into English. For example, when the Mock Turtle explains that they studied 10 hours the first day, 9 the next, this translation says "Ten hours the main day, nine the following , etc. " The punch line is supposed to be "that's way they are called lessons, because they lessen from day to day. This book has That is the reason they're called exercise, the Gfriffin commented: in light of the fact that they reduce."1So many editions and none the same!My original purchase of Kindle's "Alice in Wonderland" a few years ago, the cover shown in the store was exactly like the book I had as a child, along with the same original illustrations. Then I discovered that after I had it in my library for a while, it wasn't what I bought! It was inexpensive, so I looked again in the store...guess what? You can't judge a book by it's cover. Even Amazon can't do it! This review will turn up, as others I've read for any book with the same title, or a variation...Alice's Adventure in Wonderland or "Adventures" , Alice in Wonderland, The Complete Adventures of Alice in Wonderland!!!!!! Egad! I've got 3 or 4 different editions, and can't seem to move to the trash, delete, dip in pieces AAUGH!!!1We're all mad hereThe Cheshire Cat. Down the rabbit hole. Mad hatter. Curiouser and curiouser. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!Even if you have never read "Alice in Wonderland," some part of its charmingly nonsensical story has probably slipped into your head over the years. Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy tale is a dreamlike adventure that breezily eschews plot, character development and any kind of logic... and between his cleverly nonsensical writing ("I daresay it's a French mouse, come over with William the Conqueror") and surrealist adventures, it is absolutely perfect that way. How many books can say that?A bored young girl named Alice is by a riverbank when a White Rabbit runs by, fretting, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!" and checking the watch from his waistcoat. Unsurprisingly, Alice pursues the rabbit down a rabbit-hole... and ends up floating down a deep tunnel to a strange place full of locked doors. There's also a cake and a little bottle with labels instructing you to eat or drink them, which cause Alice to either shrink or grow exponentially.As she continues pursuing the rabbit (who seems to think she's someone named Mary Ann), Alice quickly discovers that Wonderland is a place where logic and reason have very, very little influence -- talking animals in a Caucus-race, a hookah-smoking Caterpillar, even more bizarre growth potions, a grinning cat, the Duchess and her indestructible pig-baby, eternal tea-time with the March Hare and the Mad Hatter (plus the Dormouse), and finally the court of the Queen and King of Hearts."Alice in Wonderland" is one of those rare books that actually is more enjoyable and readable because it's pure nonsense, without more than a shred of plot or even proper narrative structure. The entire story is essentially Alice wandering from one wacky scenario to another in Wonderland, meeting more violently weird people with every stop and finding herself entangled in all sorts of surreal situations. It doesn't really lead anywhere, or come from anywhere.And yet, this works perfectly -- it's all about nonsense, and a coherent plot or developed characters would get in the way of that. Never has such a perfect depiction of a weird dream been turned into fiction, especially since Alice regards everything that happens with a sort of perplexed detachment. Even though NOTHING in Wonderland makes sense (vanishing cats, talking animals, arguing playing-cards painting roses, the Hatter convinced that it is six o'clock all day every day), she addresses everything with a sense of bemused internal logic ("I've had nothing yet, so I can't take more").And Carroll festoons this wacky little tale with puns ("We called his Tortoise because he taught us"), odd snatches of mutilated poetry ("Twinkle, twinkle, little bat/how I wonder what you're at") and tangled snarls of eccentric logic that only works if you're technically insane (so... flamingoes are like mustard?). This keeps the plotless story as sparkling and swift-moving as a mountain stream laced with LSD, so the mind never has a chance to get bored by Alice simply wandering around, growing and shrinking, and engaged in a string of conversations with loopy people."Alice in Wonderland" is a mad, mad, mad, mad experience -- and between Carroll's sparkling dialogue and enchantingly surreal story, it's also a lot of fun. Never a dull moment... except the wait to read "Through the Looking Glass."4Italicized Text?!I really wanted to like this--the original illustrations are beautifully reproduced--but bizzarely, half the books are italicized in their entirety, making them pretty much unreadable. If this were fixed, I'd give this 5 stars.1Is Alice Disabled?Lewis Carroll s Alice s Adventures in Wonderland has a fatal flaw. The "It was all a dream" ending is as soul-crushing as it is for any fantasy story! What can one do to improve Lewis Carroll's ending? I thought. Alice doesn't DO much, the main focus is on her intellectual ability, and when she does do physical actions it's seen by other characters. Alice does appear to have a disability. I have Cerebral Palsy, and I spend time daydreaming about doing stuff able-bodied people can do and am very smart, so this seemed the perfect way to fix this flaw. There are some passages that I find interesting as they are in accordance with my theory. The way the Caucus Race is described is "All the party were placed along the course here and there. There was no 'One, two, three, and away' but they began running when they liked and left off when they liked..." at last the Dodo said EVERYBODY has won, and all must have prizes.'' As a player of adapted sports this attitude is in fact not nonsensical but quite normal, as this is what happens in adapted sports. Alice also struggles to hold the Duchess' pig-baby. It says "... Kept doubling itself up and straightening itself out again, so that altogether, for the first minute or two, it was as much as she could do to hold it." She also struggles with holding her flamingo during the game of croquet. It says "The chief difficulty Alice found at first was in managing her flamingo: she succeeded in getting its body tucked away, comfortably enough, under her arm, with its legs hanging down, but generally, just as she had got its neck nicely straightened out, and was going to give the hedgehog a blow with its head, it would twist itself round and look up in her face." Lewis Carrol only says of the other players that they were "Quarreling." As a final note, while it does say Alice ran to get to the house at the end of the story, Alice says in "Down The Rabbit Hole" "I shall think nothing of tumbling down stairs! How brave they'll think me at home!" The Line ``How brave they'll think me at home!" implies that this happens more often than it happens to most normally developed children, her Disability may affect some physical abilities and not others. There is also how Involved the stuff Alice does in Wonderland is to begin with. The content of Alice s dream is quite normal, which like the quotes in the paragraph above suggest on a normal day her disability may not let her do the simplest things. The poems being repeated were based on real poems, and that means Alice is consciously integrating them into her dream like I do today with popular characters and celebrities.Most of the stuff done in Wonderland is simple, day-to-day activities. Alice dreams of swimming, eating, drinking, having a race, going to a tea party, learning a dance, playing a sport, (Croquet) playing fetch with a dog, walking around, talking to people; all given a delightfully bizarre spin by Lewis Carroll. The "Final Confrontation" between Alice and the Queen and King of Hearts is verbal, not physical, giving more credence to my theory. Lewis Carroll didn't have the opportunity to think about his story this way, and if you didn't you're NOT a horrible person, you just made the same assumption I made when I saw the (incomplete) Disney version when I was a kid. The idea that this MAYBE Alice COULD be a child like me is a magical and realistic ending for intelligent, imaginative, and adventurous girls like me and Alice.5
