Extended my expectations!! I have seriously never seen a more beautiful book! The detail is awesome and even the story itself is from the original Lewis Carroll version. Not only is each page a beautiful pop up.. But each page has mini fold out pages with more pop up artwork.
This will be a keepsake for our family. SO glad I bought this and will look at buying others! This review is specifically for the penguin hardcover cloth-bound classics edition white with pink flamingos! Naturally, the tale of Alice in Wonderland told in two books; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass is definitely a fun, unique tale that appeals to children and adults alike, so of course I wanted to own a quality copy of it! I like how this edition contains both books and is hardcover with a simple cover design that looks timeless and elegant on my bookshelf.
The book is full of useful notes and information in edition to having the tale; plus it contains the classic illustrations too!

I thought it was such an attractive edition that I bought one for my sister, who is a collector of the various editions of this tale. I've no complaints except that I don't really care for how rough the fabric is; it's not very nice to hold in your bare hands in my opinion, and it makes a sound when it's placed on the shelf next to other cloth-bound hardcovers from the penguin classics series, so those are two things to keep in mind.

I personally would have preferred either a softer fabric or for the books to have been bound in hard-backed pleather. Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. 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 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 I've got 3 or 4 different editions, and can't seem to move to the trash, delete, dip in pieces AAUGH!!! I don't always like annotated editions, but I bought this one because both stories were included and it retains all of the original illustrations like the ones I remember reading as a child.
The Annotated Alice
Having said that, I enjoyed the illustrations by other artists included for historical context. Some of them are quite stunning, in fact. The thing I hate about annotated editions is the way the annotations create visual "clutter. I really have to force my slightly OCD-like mind to ignore that and concentrate on the text of the story. However, as a history buff, I enjoy reading the annotations from a historical perspective. It's a big book, so if you enjoy a hefty hardcover, this is the one for you.

Contents Preface to The Definitive Edition Introduction to The Annotated Alice The extensive introduction to the original edition includes Gardner's explanation of his approach to annotating the Alice books as well as an essay on Carroll; what is known of his personality, interests, and his fixation on little girls - especially Alice Liddell. Introduction to More Annotated Alice The introduction to the second edition describes how interest in Carroll had grown since the publication of the original edition, how letters from readers led to the new edition, and how "The Wasp in a Wig" came to be.
There are also new insights into Carroll's feelings towards little girls.
