Quotable Alice

compiled and edited by
David W. Barber

130 pages, paperback
ISBN-13: 978-0920151525

The enchanting tale of Alice following a White Rabbit into Wonderland – a tale given new life by the release of director Tim Burton’s reimagined film version starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen and Mia Wasikowska as Alice – began as a story told aloud to amuse a real little girl named Alice during a boating picnic on the River Thames one summer afternoon in 1862. Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, have become classic tales beloved by children and adults alike.

In Quotable Alice, longtime fan David W. Barber brings together the best and most memorable of Carroll’s pithy expressions from the Alice books, complete with an index for easy reference. The text is wonderfully complemented by a selection of the famous illustrations Sir John Tenniel created for the original editions.
