I can't believe that I almost forgot to post about this. My book friend right here in the old hometown, Nancy P, slipped the little treasure pictured above into a basket of homemade Christmas treats for Mom and me.
It's a 1918 copy that was slightly and skillfully edited for middle elementary students, with the original Tenniel illustrations. I squealed when I found it.
What a charming and thoughtful gift. It is on the shelf next to my Little House collection, and will be one of my first reads for 2016.
