ClubLeabhar.com - Book of the Month, September 2011

The book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a treasure of English children’s literature and was first published in 1865. It has been translated into many languages. An Irish translation by Pádraig Ó Cadhla (1875–1948) was published in 1922 but no other Irish version has appeared since.

The present Irish version is a completely new translation by Nicholas Williams. K. Verschoyle drew the illustrations for Ó Cadhla’s version, whereas this new book contains the famous illustrations of Sir John Tenniel, which first appeared in the original English edition.
