This is a retelling of the Lewis Carroll classic that is perfect for
younger readers. Whether read aloud or read alone, it is a wonderful introduction that
encapsulates the essence of Carroll's tale without being overwhelming. In its special
vintage livery of cloth spine, gold foil and full colour illustrations in the traditional Disney
style, it is the final in this series which includes Bambi, Cinderella, Peter Pan and Pinocchio.

stories that have endured from generation to generation, providing the foundation for
understanding the originals when they are ready.
Definitely worth having in your collection and suggesting to parents and grandparents as a
