Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

Carroll, Lewis|Tenniel, John|Gardner, Martin
Weary of her storybook, one "without pictures or conversations," the young and imaginative Alice follows a hasty hare underground--to come face-to-face with some of the strangest adventures and most fantastic characters in all of literature. The Ugly Duchess, the Mad Hatter, the weeping Mock Turtle, the diabolical Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat--each more eccentric than the last--could only have come from that master of sublime nonsense, Lewis Carroll. In penning this brilliant burlesque of children's literature, Carroll has written a farcical satire of rigid Victorian society, an arresting parody of the fears, anxieties, and complexities of growing up. Carroll was one of the few adult writers to successfully enter the children's world of make-believe: where the impossible becomes possible, the unreal--real, and where the height of adventure is limited only by the depths of imagination.

Just as full of whimsy and imagination as I thought it would be. You don't have to be a child to read this book, because it will awaken the inner child within you. I absolutely loved it.

This adventure is truly deserving of its classic status. A delightful romp that got genuine laughs from me.
