Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Dover Thrift Editions)

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Dover Thrift Editions) Lowest new price: $1.79
Lowest used price: $0.25
List price: $3.00
Author: Lewis Carroll
Brand: imusti

One of the English language's most popular and frequently quoted books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was the creation of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), a distinguished scholar and mathematician who wrote under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. Intended for young readers but enjoyed equally by adults, the fantastic tale transformed children's literature, liberating it from didactic constraints.
The story is deeply but gently satiric, enlivened with an imaginative plot and brilliant use of nonsense. As Alice explores a bizarre underground world, she encounters a cast of strange characters and fanciful beasts: the White Rabbit, March Hare, and Mad Hatter; the sleepy Dormouse and grinning Cheshire Cat; the Mock Turtle, the dreadful Queen of Hearts, and a host of other extraordinary personalities. This edition features Sir John Tenniel's complete original illustrations, bringing to life a beloved classic that has delighted readers and listeners since its first publication in 1865.

Whether you’re looking to setup a saltwater reef or a fish only tank, this book was written as an explanation and road-map to success in caring for your aquarium equipment, fish, corals, and invertebrates.

Neil Barnhart called Saltwater Fish and Reef Tanks, “a must have for anyone interested in starting in the hobby,” and went on to say he'd been “in the hobby for 5 years now” and can “finally understand things” he was “embarrassed to ask the store guy”

david S. said it is, "Right to the point essential information" and went on to call it, "A must have reference that will make the hobby experience a lot more enjoyable."

Matt Brown said, "great tool to use”, “The tables within it are extremely useful”, and “I can't think of another book that was as easy and enjoyable to read.”

Bo Garrett said it provides “motivation and inspiration” and it has “an unbelievable amount of information.”

Mr. Blanchard walks the reader through the process of owning a saltwater aquarium setup from the perspective of a beginner. Starting with his first reef tank experience, and ending with a chapter on responsible reef-keeping, the reader is offered a vast amount of information that usually costs the aquarist quite a bit of time and money to obtain; the precise reason most hobbyists give up – within the first year - on owning a beautiful saltwater aquarium.
