Hello fellow readers,

I'm currently looking to read and own Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll but I'm not sure which verison of the book to get. I do know that I would like to get as close to original as possible. So, no Disney verison. Also, I heard there was second Alice book, is that tue?

So, which verison of Alice In Wonderland do you PBSs recommend I get? Thanks!

There was originally two books, Alice in Wonderland and the sequel, Through the Looking Glass.   I've seen a reproduction that was photos of the original version.  

ETA  There are probably other versions of this.

Wow, That's a pretty impressive. It's a shame that it's not posted.

Could anyone recommend one of the Alice books that is currently posted?

The classic ones are illustrated by Sir John Tenniel.  Maybe these three paperbacks?
