Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and Illustrated by Camille Rose Garcia

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and Illustrated by Camille Rose Garcia is a classic tale that should really be on everyone’s bookshelf. This is a timeless story that can be appreciated by all generations, and this is a beautiful gift edition that people of all ages will enjoy.

Book Description
“Since its publication in 1865, Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has delighted the world with a wildly imaginative and unforgettable journey, inspiring children of all ages to suspend disbelief and follow Alice into her fantasy worlds. This new gift edition presents Carroll's tale fully unabridged with a unique visual interpretation by renowned artist Camille Rose Garcia.” – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

My Thoughts
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories from childhood. As an adult, I hadn’t read the story again, until this book touched my hands. It is even better reading it as an adult because I found so much more in the story than when I was a kid. I appreciate literature more now and Lewis Carroll is one of the best. If I had kids, I’d read this to them before bed or naptime.

The illustrator for this special edition of the book does a truly amazing job with the artwork for the story. Camille Rose Garcia is exceptionally talented, and I really hope that she illustrates more books like this in the future. Her artwork is edgy and gothic, which gives this children’s tale a more grownup or current vibe than when it was written.

I absolutely loved this edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and highly recommend this as a book for everyone to get. It would also make an excellent gift for someone, especially if they love this story and the characters in it.

* Thank you to the publisher of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Harper Design, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
