"Only Lewis Carroll has shown us the world upside down the way a child sees it, and has made us laugh as children laugh." --Virginia Woolf; 'Usborne are widely known for their very popular range of abridged classics... Chunky and complete with clear print and colour illustrations, these should appeal to those parents and grandparents keen to encourage children to encounter past great reads in their entirety.
