    This book is missing some of the original text.

    Say what you want, but having pictures along with the words (especially in a book such as this) really are nice. Sure there's a free copy available just next door, but this actually gives the reader a storybook feel. (For example, the mouse's tale actually is shaped like a tail) And for the parts that may seem 'extra' confusing, suched as Alices botched recollections of nursery rhymes, there are helpful annotations following that will explain them fully. I dare you not to be completely satisfied with this purchase.
  • Beyond expectation

    Now I know why John Tenniel drew the Mock Turtle with the head, hind hoofs, and tail of a calf.

    Elegant looking. The annotated parts of the book are short and sweet.
