Reseña del editor:

Since its inception in 1999 with The Annotated Alice, the Norton Annotated Books series has been acclaimed and praised for its thoroughly annotated and lushly illustrated editions of great literature—from The Wizard of Oz to The Secret Garden, from the adventures of Sherlock Holmes to the redemption of Ebenezer Scrooge. Now all fourteen volumes (to date) of the Norton Annotated Books are available in a single set of 15 books (The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Short Stories is two volumes). With lush illustrations (color, two-tone, and black-and-white photos and illustrations throughout each volume) and entertaining, authoritative annotations throughout each, the Annotated Books provide the most entertaining and intimate experiences of these great classics:

The Annotated Alice (by Lewis Carroll with illustrations by John Tenniel, edited by Martin Gardner): The Definitive Edition of The Annotated Alice combines the notes of Gardner's 1960 Annotated Alice with his 1990 update, More Annotated Alice, as well as additional new discoveries and updates drawn from Gardner's encyclopedic knowledge of the texts.

The Annotated Brothers Grimm (by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, edited and translated by Maria Tatar): The Annotated Brothers Grimm celebrates the richness and dramatic power of the legendary fables with forty stories in new translations by Maria Tatar—including "Little Red Riding Hood," "Cinderella," "Snow White," and "Rapunzel," plus tales that were previously excised, including a few bawdy stories and others that were removed after the Grimms learned that parents were reading the book to their children.

The Annotated Christmas Carol (by Charles Dickens with illustrations by John Leech, edited by Michael Patrick Hearn): With extensive annotations and reading notes, this is the first edition to combine the original text of 1843 with Dickens's Public Reading text, which had its world premiere in America in 1867 and had not been reprinted in nearly a century. Also included are rare photographs as well as the original Leech wood engravings and hand-colored etchings.

The Annotated Classic Fairy Tales (edited and translated by Maria Tatar): Tatar, a leading expert in the field of folklore and children's literature, guides readers through the stories, exploring their historical origins, their cultural complexities, and their psychological effects. Tatar presents twenty-six classic stories—including "Beauty and the Beast," "Little Red Hiding Hood," "Jack and the Beanstalk," and "The Little Mermaid." Over 300 often rare, mostly four-color photographs, paintings, and illustrations.

The New Annotated Dracula (by Bram Stoker, edited by Leslie S. Klinger): Traveling through two hundred years of popular culture and myth as well as graveyards and the wilds of Transylvania, Klinger's notes illuminate every aspect of this haunting narrative, including a detailed examination of the original typescript of Dracula, with its shockingly different ending, previously unavailable to scholars.

The Annotated Hunting of the Snark (by Lewis Carroll with illustrations by Henry Holiday, edited by Martin Gardner): A trove of new annotations and illustrations, uncovering some of the most confounding literary, linguistic, and mathematical references embedded in any of Lewis Carroll's many works. Included in this gorgeous, two-color volume is an introduction by Adam Gopnik, as well as Henry Holiday's distinctive, original illustrations, a substantial bibliography, and a suppressed drawing of the infamous Boojum.

The Annotated Hans Christian Andersen (by Hans Christian Andersen, edited and translated b
