About the Author

Lewis Carroll is the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, 1832-1898. Alice in Wonderland was first published in 1865.

Ralph Steadman has been a cartoonist since 1956, starting as a caustic observer of Britain's political and social scene. He is well known as the illustrator of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Steadman's work appears regularly in newspapers and magazines, including Rolling Stone and the Atlantic Monthly, and his many published books include Tales of the Weirrd and Sigmund Freud.

Reviews

The familiar cast of characters... takes on a bizarre life of its own with Steadman's black and white illustrations. Children... will be curious, confused yet amazed by what they read and see in this book--Cindly L. Carolan "Children's Literature "
A world where people fall down rabbit holes and confront talking caterpillars is a place where Steadman would feel comfortable. An interesting look at the artist at an earlier stage in his own artistic approach.-- (03/09/2007)
[Steadman's drawings] are still remarkably fresh and unique.--White Rabbit Tales [Newsletter of the Lewis Carrol (01/01/2002)
Don't count on a bookful of sweet, charming etchings of the shrinking golden girl; this is a somewhat less flattering Alice than the one we've come to know and expect. In over 40 pen and ink illustrations, this Wonderland is more tempestuous; of greater, grittier (and funnier) distortion... when dangerous satirists like Steadman exercise their imaginations and lyric, delirious pens in the slivers and shards of a distorted world -- look out.-- (11/01/2003)
Ferocious Steadman spin.--Toronto Star (08/31/2003)
Explosive ink drawings... acidic whimsies splash across pages, bringing dear Alice a newly stimulating cup of tea.-- (11/30/2003)
Alice as you've rarely seen her... fun for all ages... full of the wit and wisdom Carroll originally gave us.-- (12/07/2003)
Sophisticated humor--Liz Pogue"Victoria Times-Colonist" (08/31/2003)
Pair[s] a perpetually suspicious Alice with peculiar creatures that well warrant her chariness.--Clair Martin"Denver Post" (11/30/2003)
Carroll's hall-of-mirrors children's tale and Steadman's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" style make for an eerily perfect fit.--Mary Ann Gwinn"Seattle Times" (12/10/2003)
