IS one of the most honored illustrators alive today.

Carroll, Lewis; Zwerger, Lisbeth (illustrator)
Alice in Wonderland
New York, NY, U.S.A.: North-South Books, Incorporated, 1999 1st 4to (11.5X9.5 inches) Illustrated boards, image replicated on DJ. A whole new take on Lewis Carrol's classic - the catarpillar in chrysalis! Cortot writes: "Charles Dodgson wrote this story at the request of Alice Liddell, and for close to 150 years, it has been a favorite of young readers. Lisbeth Zwerger brings her award-winning artistic skill to the story and offers a very different look for a new generation. Her palette is brighter, the art has more of a layered look than in her previous works, and she offers more frontal views. The whimsy is there and the White Rabbit, Queen, Cheshire Cat and others will be quickly recognized. The illustrations range from full pages to spot art liberally sprinkled throughout the twelve chapters. The story can be read on one level as a magical adventure in which Alice faces a host of very strange things and variety of bizarre characters. It fills a child's need for fantasy and escape. The actual social commentary and satire will elude most contemporary readers, but it in no way diminishes the joy of reading this classic story.
