Described by The Times on its first publication in 1865 as an excellent piece of nonsense, Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has gone on to become one of the most popular books ever written, loved by children and adults alike and translated into over 125 languages.

In Tove Jansson, Carroll's classic finds an illustrator worthy of its enchantment and surreal beauty. Jansson is renowned worldwide for her hugely successful books about the inhabitants of Moomin Valley. What is less well known is that in 1966 she devoted her unique gifts to illustrating Alice's extraordinary adventures.

Over forty years after her interpretation of Lewis Carroll's masterpiece was first enjoyed by Scandinavian readers, Tove Jansson's beautifully realised edition of the original text of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is finally made available to an English-speaking audience.

Lewis Carroll (1832-98) is the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Carroll was a mathematics lecturer who in his spare time penned poems, short stories and children's tales as well as puzzles and games of logic. He was also a pioneering photographer.

Finnish author and illustrator Tove Jansson (1914-2001) is most famous for her much- loved Moomin characters. A novelist, painter, illustrator and cartoonist, Jansson's books have been translated into over forty languages.
