Egyptian Alice

Egyptian Alice: adapted and abridged from the Lewis Carroll original.

I can’t give much info on this one, as it’s all in arabic, apart from the date 2010 and a number: 0106372799- which unfortunately doesn’t seem to be an ISBN number.

The book was a present from Egypt via my friend Debbie- thanks Debs!

It’s a 16 page softback picture book, and judging by the illustrations includes several of the familiar episodes- the hall of doors, the pool of tears, the caterpillar, and the duchess’ footmen, but omits the Cheshire cat, the mad tea party, the White Rabbit’s house and the court scenes. The book seems to end with Alice talking to the Mock Turtle- no sign of the Gryphon. I’d love a translation.

Arabic Alice

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland translated into Arabic.

Paperback.

I’m a bit shaky on the details of this one, given that I don’t understand the alphabet, let alone the language.

I do know that it was a present from my friend Debbie, that it opens from the back (which feels very odd), and that the character on the front, who I think is the Queen of Hearts, looks like my Auntie Sandra…

I really like the illustrations, but I can’t credit the artist, as I can’t read their name…

Thanks, Debbie: when you get back from Sudan, you can translate some of it for me :)
