alice through the needle’s eye

Alice Through the Needle’s Eye: A Third Adventure for Lewis Carroll’s Alice by Gilbert Adair. Published by Macmillan, 1984. Hardback first edition.

22 illustrations by Jenny Thorne.

Alice is trying to thread a needle by the fire on a snowy afternoon, when she finds herself in an alphabetical land populated by Siamese-Twin Cats (joined at the tail), the Welsh Rabbit (with his toasted cheese), the Kangaroo, the spelling bees, the Italian Hairdresser who uses a small crocodile as a pair of scissors, Jack and Jill, and best of all- the Grampus. It’s fun trying to find all the letters in the right order: this is one of my favourites of the sequels/ rewrites. The pictures are perfect too: I’ll try and get organised and scan some in.

ISBN: 0 333 37361 8

Bought in Hay for £15 to replace a copy given to me by my father, and lost.
