My World

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (150th Anniversary Edition)

"This very pretty and funny book ought to become a great favourite with children. It has this advantage, that it has no moral, and that it does not teach anything."

                             -- The Sunderland Herald 25 May 1866

 

A century and half after its original publication, Lewis Carroll's fantastical, phantasmagorical Wonderland is still endlessly fascinating to both children and adults. Quizzical Alice and the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter and the tyrannical Queen of Hearts, and their dreamlike world of teacups and mushrooms are universally beloved - but less well known are their roots and origins in the north east, which inspired Carroll's creativity and imagination throughout his life.

Produced to mark the 150th anniversary of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, this beautiful new edition explores Carroll's life and connections with the north east, from his holidays at Whitburn and Southwick to the inspiration he found in Sunderland, Ravensworth and Penshaw. Follow Alice once again down the rabbit hole to celebrate Carroll's own enchanting dreamworld, and the unexpected places he discovered it in.
