'So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible' Alice in Wonderland
Alice is one of the most beloved characters of English writing. A bright and inquisitive child, one boring summer afternoon she follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole. At the bottom she finds herself in a bizarre world full of strange creatures, and attends a very strange tea party and croquet match. This immensely witty and unique story mixes satire and puzzles, comedy and anxiety, to provide an astute depiction of the experience of childhood.
Lewis Carroll (1832-98), whose real name was Charles Dodgson, taught mathematics at Oxford University and wrote ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND for a real little girl called Alice Liddell. Later he wrote THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS, and the two Alice stories are among the most famous books ever written for children.
Review: Complete with illustrations, what a wonderful collection piece and pre-read before we see Tim Burton's take on Alice.
