I love this copy of the book. It’s a Big Golden Book with beautiful illustrations. It was put out in 1951 by Disney. It’s out of print now but you can find some really cheap copies on Ebay :)

The Holly Story Book Library: Alice in Wonderland

dscf0250This is a 1966 copy of Alice in Wonderland put out by the Holly Story Book Library. It has no ISBN and I can’t seem to find any information about it onlin. It was illustrated by R.Garcia and published by The World Publishing Company. I think the book is incredibly cute even thouh Alice does look like she’s dressed for Christmas and I don’t know why she’s wearing combat boots. But hey it’s okay! It’s Alice in Wonderland, so it doesn’t matter. This is one of the cutest non Disney books in my collection.

Alice in Wonderland Illustrated by Monique Gorde

These are some of my favorite Alice illustrations. They are so beautifully done. The book is like one that a story teller would use in an old movie. I absolutely adore it. The ISBN on this book is 0-7651-9188-1

The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor

dscf0270

I read this book earlier this year due to it being reccommended to me by a livejournal community. I thouroughly enjoyed Beddor’s approach. It reminded me somewhat of American Mcgee’s video game “Alice.” Some of the dialogue was somewhat juvenile but then again it is a young adult book so that’s to be expected. I enjoyed all the characters aside from Dodge, I found him to be a little annoying. I’ve read the second book and will post that within the next week or two. I’ve heard rumors of a movie coming out and it’ll be interesting to see how the books translate on screen.

A Little Golden Book: Alice in Wonderland

dscf0249This Golden Book version of Alice in Wonderlan came out in the 1990’s and is a really cute copy. I got it at a thrift store for under a dollar. The ISBN is 0-307-02149-1

I recently picked this book up at a new used book store near Saratoga. It’s A Golden Classic and has some really lovely illustrations in it by Kathy Mitchell. It was a little more expensive then I wanted to pay at a used bookstore but my dad bought it for me because he’s a nice guy like that. The ISBN on this book is 0-307-17111-6

Alice in Wonderland Coloring Book Page

dscf0351

I found this in a coloring book at a waiting room and they let me have it when I asked. Not the most exciting find in the world but I thought I’d put it on here since I’m too lazy to actual go upstairs and grab one of my books and look up the ISBN hah. Enjoy.

dscf0265

This is a collection of letters by Lewis Carroll and it’s also kind of a miniature biography. I read it in one day and thouroughly enjoyed it. It really gives you some insight into his life and relationships with people. I definitely learned a lot from this book and would reccommend it to any fan of Lewis Carroll. The ISBN is 1855850389.

I got this pop up book from a bookstore near Saratoga. It’s really cute and has great illustrations.  It cost only $3.50 and my Dad was nice enough to buy it for me. Unfortunately there is no ISBN number on it and I can’t seem to find it online.
