There are many editions of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but none to rival The Complete Alice, a gorgeous new gift book celebrating one hundred and fifty years of Alice.
In 1865, Macmillan published the first edition of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, widely acknowledged as one of the most influential children's books of all time. Its equally famous sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.
The Complete Alice brings together Lewis Carroll's two extraordinary stories in a single glorious volume. The original artwork has been lovingly restored. Both texts are complete and unabridged, including the rarely seen "deleted" episode The Wasp in a Wig. Also included is The Story of Alice, an exclusive sixteen-page account of the creation and first publication of Alice, told for younger readers and featuring material from Macmillan's rich historical archive. A foreword from Philip Pullman introduces this truly special gift edition.

About the Author
Lewis Carroll was the pen-name of Charles Ludwidge Dodgson. Born in 1832, Dodgson was a mathematics tutor at Christ Church College, Oxford. In addition to his famous children's stories, his published work included poetry, puzzles, mathematical treaties, and essays on subjects as wide-ranging as tennis and the art of writing letters.
Sir John Tenniel was already a renowned cartoonist when he was invited to produce illustrations for Alice. His exquisite engravings are among the most iconic and best loved images in the world.
Philip Pullman is one of today's most highly aclaimed writers for children. Best known for the multi-award winning His Dark Materials trilogy, he lives and writes in Oxford, the city where Alice was created.
