'Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"'
So begins the tale of Alice, following a curious White Rabbit down a rabbit-hole and falling into Wonderland.
A fantastical place, where nothing is quite as it seems: animals talk, nonsensical characters confuse, Mad Hatter's throw tea parties and the Queen plays croquet. Alice's attempts to find her way home become increasingly bizarre, infuriating and amazing in turn.
A beloved classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has continued to delight readers, young and old for over a century.

Comments about Alice's Adventures In Wonderland:
Charming children's classic that I never read as a child but wanted to know what the fuss was about. Love the word plays and logical paradoxes and semantics. Clearly Carroll was a precursor to much of the word comedy of the English comedians in the sixties and seventies, Monty Python and the Two Ronnies for example. Interesting to compare my memories of Disney version. Read in conjunction with Alice Through the Looking Glass.
