"Was there ever yet any thing written by mere man that was wished longer by its readers, excepting Don Quixote, Robinson Crusoe, and The Pilgrim's Progress?" - Samuel Johnson

Young Robinson Crusoe takes to the sea despite his parents’ wishes, but his enterprising life is stalled completely when he is shipwrecked. Ingenuity and the island provide him with every thing a person could want—except for someone to talk to. Completely alone with his goats, his parrot, and his God, Crusoe’s perception of life and his place in the world change slowly and steadily … at least until the island he calls his own is disturbed by the arrival of hungry cannibals.

This Canon Classic is a three-century-old bestseller, a realistic adventure, and a handbook on deserted island survival all rolled into one.

"No story in English literature has intrigued me more than Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. " -Walt Disney

"One hundred and fifty years after its publication, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland remains a doozy and a delight for children and adults. The book stands out for many reasons, but is particularly exceptional as an innovative work of nonsense. It is also noteworthy for its lack of moralism and sentimentalism that was so en vogue during the Victorian era. But does the absence of an obvious moral mean the story has no meaning? And what is the draw to Wonderland, that dreamy realm of easily outraged creatures where madness is the ruling authority? What about that druggie caterpillar?" -From Amanda Ryan's Introduction

When Alice follows a talking white rabbit into his burrow, she discovers a world of whimsy governed by otherworldly logic that she never quite masters. In this beloved children's classic, Alice runs in a caucus race that nobody can win or lose, gets turned into a giant, discusses poetry with a caterpillar, has tea with a Mad Hatter and March Hare, and finally plays a bizarre game of croquet with flamingos before taking part in the Knave of Hearts's trial for stealing tarts.

Written by a noted mathematician, this Canon Classic is literary candy and remains as humorous and imaginative as when it was first published in 1865. The Canon Classics series presents the most definitive works of Western literature in a colorful, well-crafted, and affordable way.
