Lewis Carroll's Alice books were written as stories for children but have fascinated adults and children alike for over a hundred years. At one level they recount the adventures of a little girl who falls down a rabbit-hole into a dream world of exotic creatures, and posses through a looking-glass landscape inhabited by Red Queens and White Knights, Lions and Unicorns. At another, the tales are a witty and ingenious game of language and logic. The Cheshire Cat, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Gryphon and the Mock Turtle are as vivid and as relevant today as they were to Victorian readers.

Fun read for adults and children. It is different then the newly created movies of Alice in Wonderland with different characters and even some of the characters we know from the movies.

I agree, Definitely for the young at heart! I just love its total nonsense and yet the story has so much heart.
I have found that everyone who reads Alice feels particularly attached to different parts of the story... This may reflect badly on me but my favourite lines would have to be the most nonsensical: "Twas brillig/and the slithy toves/did gyre and gimbel in the wabe/all mimsy were the borogoves/and the mome raths outgrabe"... Curiouser and curiouser!

"I think I should understand that better," Alice said very politely, "if I had it written down? but I ca'n't quite follow it as you say it." Alice-Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

“Why, sometimes I've believed in more than six impossible things before breakfast.”
