A New Alice in the Old Wonderland is a novel by Anna Matlack Richards, written in 1895 and published by J. B. Lippincott of Philadelphia. It is, according to Carolyn Sigler, one of the more important "Alice imitations", or novels inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice books.[1]

It concerns Alice Lee, an American girl with a coincidental name, visiting Wonderland and meeting all the characters she has read about in the original Alice book. The book features 67 drawings after the originals by John Tenniel which were drawn by the author's daughter, artist Anna Richards Brewster, who is credited as "Anna M. Richards, Jr.".
