Lewis Carroll's Alice has been enchanting children for 150 years. Curious Alice, the bossy White Rabbit, the formidable Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter are among the best-loved, most iconic literary creations of all time.

In Alice Poetry, we celebrate the poems of Lewis Carroll, from the sublime to the surreal, including popular favourites such as Jabberwocky , The Walrus and the Carpenter and Tweedledum and Tweedledee. In addition to these classic, beloved poems, this beautiful collection features many contemporary poems from editor Michaela Morgan and a host of popular poets, including Roger McGough, John Agard, Grace Nichols, Rachel Rooney, Tony Mitton, Vivian French, Cheryl Moskowitz, Joseph Coehlo, and Jan Dean, each one putting their own spin on these classic texts.
