This year Alice turns 150 years old and to celebrate there have been numerous collector's and special editions published. This is the one you *need* to own. Just pick it up, feel the weight of it, the texture, go ahead, smell it. This book screams COLLECTOR. The text is the same story you've always known and loved, but this is Alice as you've never seen her before. Illustrated by the beloved surrealist Salvador Dali, this book is sure to delight the artist, the bibliophile, and somewhat surprisingly, the mathematician on your list.— Heather

'Curiouser and curiouser ' On a hot, sunny day Alice sees a rabbit in a waistcoat and follows it into a large hole. With this, Alice goes spiralling down into a fantastical land of very strange creatures - talking White Rabbit, a Frog-Footman, smiling Cheshire Cat, hookah-smoking Caterpillar, Mad Hatter and, of course, the cruel Queen. A land where Alice can be three inches or nine feet tall with just a gulp of a 'curious' drink or a bite of a mushroom; a place where everything and anything is possible . But where is this strange land? And will Alice ever get out of this mysterious place and go back to the real world? Alice in Wonderland is a classic book for all ages as Lewis Carroll blends imagination and word-play to create a world of wonders.
