In Tove Jansson, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 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.

Described by The Times (UK) 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.

Over forty years after her interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece was first enjoyed by Scandinavian readers, Tove Jansson’s beautiful edition of this classic work of children’s literature is once again available in North America.
