Chris Riddell: Alice in Wonderland

This month, we asked illustrator and author Chris Riddell to choose our Book of the Month.

Chris Riddell recently joined us at HMP Wormwood Scrubs for our Making it Up family day, where he inspired children and fathers alike with his beautiful drawings and readings from his new book, Once Upon a Wild Wood.

Alice in Wonderland was a huge, huge thing for me when I was nine or ten years old – it was the book that made me aware of how powerful illustration can be.
