The Nursery "Alice" (1890) is a shortened version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) by Lewis Carroll — pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898) — adapted by the author himself for children "from nought to five". It includes 20 of John Tenniel's illustrations from the original book coloured, enlarged and, in some cases, revised.

It was first published in 1890 by Macmillan, 25 years after the original Alice, and featured a new cover illustrated by E. Gertrude Thomson, who was a good friend of Dodgson.
