Another Alice Book, Please!

Another Alice Book, Please! by A.L.Gibson.

Published by John Castle in 1924. Hardback, no dust jacket.

Very pretty black and white illustrations by H.R.Millar.

An Alice-like fantasy written at the request of the author’s children who wanted more “Alice”.

I can’t find much info on the author, but the illustrator was a well known artist of children’s literature from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, including some of the coloured Fairy Books (which I loved as a kid). He also worked with E. Nesbit, illustrating Five Children and It and The Phoenix and the Carpet. There’s a full list here.

Princess Alyss of Wonderland

Princess Alyss of Wonderland by Frank Beddor.

Artists: Catia Chien and Vance Kovacs.

Published by Dial Books, 2007.

First edition hardback.

ISBN: 978-0803732513

This is rather a cute thing- designed as a scrap-book, with flaps to lift and envelopes to open and maps to unfold. It covers the same ground as The Looking Glass Wars: the adventures of Alyss Heart after leaving Wonderland.

Synopsis from the publisher:

Enter the exciting world of the real Alyss of Wonderland! Behold the stunning proof that the fictitious little girl you have known as Alice was actually a very real little princess named Alyss. Assembled in this scrapbook are the collected letters, journals, and art of the princess who fled her world of wonder only to find herself alone in our world with nothing but her imagination to sustain her. Lavishly illustrated and fully interactive, this book will captivate and delight princess enthusiasts and fans of the original Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

On amazon: Princess Alyss of Wonderland
