When Alice tumbles down, down, down a rabbit-hole one hot summer's afternoon in pursuit of a White Rabbit she finds herself in Wonderland. And there begin the fantastical adventures that will see her experiencing extraordinary changes in size, swimming in a pool of her own tears and attending the very maddest of tea parties. For Wonderland is no ordinary place and the characters that populate it are quite unlike anybody young Alice has ever met before. In this imaginary land she encounters the savagely violent Queen, the Lachrymose Mock Turtle, the laconic Cheshire Cat and the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, each as surprising and outlandish as the next. Alice's adventures have made her the stuff of legend, the child heroine par excellence , and ensured that Carroll's book is the best loved and most widely read in children's literature.

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.”
