Alice in Wonderland (Wonder Book)

Adventures from the Original Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, adapted and abrided
by Marcia Martin, illustrated by Laszlo Matulay.  Wonder Books/Grosset & Dunlap Inc., 1951.

I lied.  Yesterday, I said I didn't have any books to show you this week.  Now I've shuffled my schedule all around and I have not one, but two books.  I'm a silly blogger.

Today's book is a Wonder Book, one of those wonderful, cheap picture book series that sprung up after the success of Little Golden Books.  I rather love the illustrations in this one.

The full title is Adventures From the Original Alice in Wonderland, and it is adapted and abridged by Marcia Martin.  "The illustrations are after Sir John Tenniel, drawn in color by Laszlo Matulay."  The book includes a few elements from Through the Looking Glass, too, such as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, and Humpty Dumpty.

I love love love me some Alice.



















The last two illustrations are my favorite, but I am rather partial to the little oysters in "The Walrus and the Carpenter" segment, too.  The hats!

    1. Oh, fun! Because I'm weird, we actually watched the old 1933 black-and-white version first, which the girls love. They love the Disney, too. Alice is just the best!
