The Penguin Collection offers the perfect introduction to the world of Penguin Books.

Now the original design is loved by a whole new generation, and Penguin is still committed to making the best books in every genre available to readers all over the world.
On an ordinary summer's afternoon, Alice tumbles down a hole and an extraordinary adventure begins. In a strange world with even stranger characters, she meets a grinning cat and a rabbit with a pocket-watch, joins a mad tea-party and plays croquet with the Queen. Lost in this fantasy land, Alice finds herself growing more and more curious by the minute . .
Lewis Carroll, 1832-98, war Dozent für Mathematik in Oxford. Seine Erzählungen über die kleine Alice gehören zu den bekanntesten und meistzitierten Texten der englischen Literatur. Sie sind Klassiker der Nonsensliteratur.
