I found, to my dismay, that I was not enjoying any part of the first book and so abandonned the project. I still may be the only person in the northern hemisphere who has not seen any of the movies.
So now, with the advent of the much anticipated new Tim Burton's movie Alice in Wonderland, I thought maybe I should re-read the beloved classic. Because, I think I was about twelve when I last read it and I really don't know the story. Oh, I know enough to get the gist of it, but I wanted to be able to compare the book and movie. Then I heard that the movie has taken many liberties with the story and it is not at all the same as the book.
I don't care. I am thoroughly enjoying the tale. I have gotten lost in the pages.
Is this not the most beautiful edition of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland you have ever seen? Okay, maybe my photos don't show it justice. You may have to find your own copy to really appreciate the beauty. This was being unpacked as I wandered about the shop, and I had to have it.
It is lusciously illustrated by Australian Robert Ingpen.
The watercolours flow from one page to the next, encompassing the text (so no glaring white pages) and nearly every page has an illustration.
More tea, anyone?
and if you've read this far and found this post through Twitter, would you mind letting me know how you came here? (just curious)
