Win a bumper Alice in Wonderland prize!

Curiouser and curiouser... 

This year marks the 150th anniversary since the original Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll and illustrated by Sir John Tenniel was first published by Macmillan Children’s Books. To mark this special landmark, they are publishing a new illustrated edition by Wonderland lover and multi award-winning illustrator, Chris Riddell.

Alice's second adventure – the sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – takes her through the looking-glass to a place even stranger than the Wonderland, where she is joined by iconic characters such as Humpty Dumpty and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

To celebrate this anniversary, we're giving one lucky Caboodler the chance to win a bumper Alice in Wonderland prize, including: 

  • A £40 National Book Token, with Tenniel's classic illustrations
  • A stunning set of both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, beautifully illustrated and signed by Chris Riddell
  • A Cornishware tea set for four
  • 2 tickets to the Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser exhibition at the V&A in London
  • £250 towards travel and accommodation

10 runners-up will each receive a copy of both books and a £10 Alice National Book Token.
