Lewis Carroll ; adapted by Lesley Sims ; illustrated by Mauro Evangelista ; reading consultant, Alison Kelly
This is a popular title in the "Young Reading" series re-issued with a hardback cover and an audio CD inserted into a wallet inside the back cover, making the book and CD easy to store together. An ordinary day becomes extraordinary when Alice follows the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole and finds herself in Wonderland. "The Young Reading" series is developed with experts at Roehampton University to help young readers grow in confidence and ability. The packaging also allows potential purchasers to view the inside of the book.
These two new gift editions in the "Usborne Young Reading Series" are titles to treasure, published in hardback with a ribbon marker. Each title is a classic: The tragedy of William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" is delicately re-examined; and Lewis Carroll's imaginative fantasy "Alice in Wonderland" is given a larger-than-life retelling. "Usborne's Young Reading Series" was developed in conjunction with experts from the University of Surrey and is designed to encourage independent reading. Each title has clear, engaging text and is accompanied by stunning original illustrations.
