Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
One of the best children’s books ever written, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll tells the story of a young girl named Alice who follows a white rabbit down a rabbit hole and goes on the adventure of her life.
From talking animals to food and drink that changes your size, a world that Alice first finds “curiouser and curiouser” soon ceases to shock her. On this journey she meets a colorful cast of characters: a white rabbit with a pocket watch, a duchess with a pig for a baby, a chesire cat who never ceases to grin, a Mad Hatter, March Hare, and Doormouse and finally, the red queen, who she defiantly stands up against.
This would have to be my fourth time reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and it never ceases to entertain me. I always find something that I seem to forget about in my memories of it and I can never remember the exact order the story goes in. Which isn’t a bad thing. If I’m going to re-read a book several times I’d rather not remember everything about it, otherwise there’s no point in re-reading it.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland will definitely be a book I will read to my children when they are little and I sincerely hope that every child experiences this amazing tale at least once in their life.
