♦ ABOUT THIS BOOK
“ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND RETOLD IN WORDS OF ONE SYLLABLE” is a retelling by J. C. Gorham of Lewis Carroll's novel, written in 1905 and published by A. L. Burt of New York. It is one of a series of "One Syllable Books", which were "selected specially for young people's reading, and told in simple language for youngest readers". (WIKIPEDIA)
“In the early twentieth century, great books were often “retold in words of one syllable” so that the language would be easier for beginning readers. In this adaptation, Mrs. J. C. Gorham “cheats” only a little, hyphenating some longer words that couldn’t be avoided—but the text remains a lively and enjoyable retelling of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale. Recommended for young readers and for adult literacy classes.” (EVERTYPE.COM)
