    Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the river bank, and of having nothing to do...when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran by her. Alice did not think it so very strange to hear the Rabbit say to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" But when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat pocket and then hurried on, she started to wonder! Running after the strange fellow, she was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole. Down jumped Alice after it (never considering how in the world she was to get out again) and she tumbled into a curious world inhabited by the Mad Hatter, the Ugly Duchess, the Mock Turtle, the Cheshire Cat,...read more

    "Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do ..." .. and from that moment onward we drift with Alice into another world. When she sees a White Rabbit as it runs through the tall grass (looking worriedly at the watch it takes from its waist-coat pocket), she runs after it and drops into a strange dream. The world is full of chatty animals, from a rather stand-offish hookah-smoking caterpillar to the friendly Cheshire Cat which only sometimes goes to the bother of having a body. And everyone seems to be ordering her about ... or telling her to recite poetry! ... and all those verses that she once knew so well seem strangely...read more

    Many a day we rowed together on that quiet stream...and many a fairy tale had been extemporized...yet none of these tales got written down: they lived and died...each in its own golden afternoon until there came a day when, as it chanced, one of the listeners petitioned that the tale might be written down for her. Thus, in 1864, Oxford mathematician Charles Dodgson (under the pen name of Lewis Carroll) presented family friend, Alice Liddell with the first edition of what would become the inimitable classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Seven years after Alice's success, Carroll published Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, the equally beloved sequel. Freshly and...read more
