"Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." Lewis Carroll's masterpiece Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its equally famous sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, are among the most quoted works in literature. In What Would Alice Do?, a handy, pocket-sized volume, are the pithiest quotations from the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and, of course, the irrepressible Alice, every one of them pertinent today...and guaranteed to put a Cheshire grin on your face! What Would Alice Do? offers advice for any unreasonable, demanding and downright confusing situation, from one of the most iconic female characters in literary history. Forthright, polite, and always true to herself, Alice will help you navigate life as she did Wonderland - just ask yourself, what would Alice do? Sir John Tenniel's original engravings have defined our image of Alice ever since the story was first published in 1865. Reproduced to the highest quality, the iconic images in this book will delight both fans and those discovering them for the first time. Featuring a foreword by Lauren Laverne, a gorgeous foiled cover and Tenniel's famous black line illustrations, this beautiful little book of Alice quotes makes a wonderful gift for any fan of Alice in Wonderland.

The book and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, have delighted children all over the world for 150 years.
