    1. I think that the failure not only of Children s Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child s mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind Children are first protected from their culture kept remote and safe and then they are thrust incongruously into a world that they have been told is unsafe and unsavory and we expected them not to blanch.It has been my policy that the best literature for children is not a trifling thing, not a simplificatio [...]


    2. Dreams , figments of the wondrous mind, what things can it createA little girl named Alice, 7 with her big sister a few years older, sitting on the banks of the gentle river Thames, on a calm , warm sunny day, in 1862 how delightful , still she is bored watching her sibling read a book, not paying any attention to her, with no pictures, imagine that getting sleepyOut of nowhere a nervous White Rabbit dashes by Alice, no big deal even though it has clothes on, not thinking it peculiar when the an [...]


    3. Once she remembered trying to box her own ears for having cheated herself in a game of croquet she was playing against herself, for this curious child was very fond of pretending to be two people If I ever had to choose to be another literary person than my beloved soulmate Don Quixote, it would have to be Alice in Wonderland Why would I need to be another character than the one and only Don Well, it is good to have a backup if you are asked to come to a masquerade as a favourite book character [...]


    4. Read both as a child, and again as an adult Loved and appreciated it then love and appreciate it now A book everyone should read at least once, and one that I hope children are still reading today.


    5. This is a weird one The I read the I m okay with the weirdness Does that say something about me I thought at first I wouldn t read it to my kids because it s too strange, but I m thinking now I might They just might like it We ll see how it ends Am I lame that I ve never read this before Okay, done with them both Alice in Wonderland was okay Still weird Weird and I didn t understand it Through the Looking Glass took weird to a whole new level A bad level The whole time I was reading it I was t [...]




    6. People love this Not me Does that mean I m not people Usually I like scatterbrained, nonsensical stuff and that s probably my problem I don t get the references At least some of the wild and crazy antics seem to happen to prove a point about the ridiculousness of some or other quirky British convention So maybe all the wacky shit that goes down in Alice in Wonderland has a deeply satirical basis I must give Carroll his due, the satire that I did get I enjoyed However, for me much of this fell fl [...]


    7. We re all mad here In a journey through these two magical little stories, you will find a Charming World,a Curious little girl, whimsical charactersand a lot ofNonsense.And that s it s appeal.Story 1 Alice s Adventures In Wonderland 5 StarsIn short Alice falls through a rabbit hole and lands in Wonderland Strange shit happens.I was suprised at how much I adored this book I just started reading it and I couldn t stop Even though you could say I m way too old for it, you are never really too old f [...]



    8. For decades I d figured that since I can sing along to Jefferson Airplane s song White Rabbit that I didn t have to read the book But I decided to do so and am glad I did, although I could not ever find where the dormouse said Feed your head Mostly, the dormouse just slept This book is really, really weird, even after 145 years, bowdlerization by Disney, appropriation by the hippies, and general over familiarization Good book, and it contains one of my favorite poems Twinkle, twinkle little bat [...]


    9. one of my all time favorite books, so the re read was a pleasure as always.but this barnes and noble edit made it even better with the beautiful colour pics and the book looks really pretty on my shelf.


    10. I was noticing a new friend s book shelf and how he likes children s books just as I do He had read Alice in Wonderland I had read it as a child I ask myself Did I really like that book back then Was it just given to me and that was all I had to read Did my mother pick my books And why were they always a certain kind of book, like Cinderella and The Wizard of Oz Why were they not Robinson and Crusoe and Treasure Island I can t imagine liking these books now I don t like fantasy except say for To [...]


    11. This book will make you dumb cause it will leave you speechless Do you SEE what i did there Or are you blind too I absolutely hated itIt was amazing No one should ever read this bookGo out and read it right awayI sayCallooh Callay Yes, read this curiouser thing today On a side note, I have literally been loudly proclaiming Callooh Callay in my head all day long Reading this book, it all seems to be nonsense, although there are underlying themes, but I have never had such fun with uncommon nonsen [...]


    12. Karly *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)*

      C, is for Carroll.Alice s Adventures in Wonderland4 StarsAlice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet ground in her life it was all ridges and furrows the croquet balls were live hedgehogs, and the mallets live flamingoes, and the soldiers had to double themselves up and stand on their hands and feet to make the arches.I have been in love with this bizzare seemingly drug fuelled story for a very long time, and yet somehow had never read itError corrected I think everyone is familiar w [...]


    13. I ve loved the Disney movie ever since I can remember, and so it was only natural that I was drawn to this book I read it for the first time in either second or third grade and I ve loved it ever since I remember that I was always checking it out from the library until I finally got enough sense to ask for it for my birthday It s always been one of my favorites because it s so much fun to read, but now that I m older I find that there s a lot of hidden messages that adults can relate to as well [...]


    14. Randomness GALORE yet, is not that the reason the Disney tale is such a part of my early formative years Obviously, the Disney film is a combination of both books As Alice wakes in the first book from her wacky adventures that all but defies psychoanalysis, her sister dreams about her sister dreaming The second volume, as Alice is brought back to waking life from the Looking glass House, she realizes that one of her feline pals has dreamt HER adventure This last revelation, of being protagonist [...]


    15. Relectura.y varios a os despues me sigue encantando No hay nada que pueda decir que la opini n de Virginia Wolf acerca de estos libro no pueda decir por mi Los libros de Alicia no son libros son para ni os, son los nicos libros que nos convierten en ni os.


    16. These two books were brought to you by the letters W, T, and F Of all the ineffable twaddle I ve ever read and I try to keep that to a minimum , I believe this is the piece de resistance It is proof positive that LSD was used just as irresponsibly in the 1860s as it was in the 1960s The fact that it wasn t invented until 1938 is irrelevant, as anyone who is currently under the influence of that pharmaceutical extraction could easily explain The time continuum thing confusing you Just drop a bit, [...]


    17. I ve read the first book a few times, but finally decided to read both Alice as a character is very easy for me to identify with All the same, I would be lying if I said I still feel that this is a masterpiece It can be a headache to read I much prefer the original Disney film it has always been a favourite The Tim Burton one is lovely as well This is one of the few books I ve come to love as an adaptation.




    18. HEY don t come around here no What can I say here to add to the mix Maybe that it s inspired some FREAKY art over the years See, e.g Tom Petty s Mad Hatter themed video in MTV s golden age for Don t Come Around Here No More I don t feel you any you darken my doorWhatever you re looking forHey don t come around here no I ve given up, honey please admit it s overHEY don t come around here no RIP Head Heartbreaker


    19. My parents gave me a lovely box set copy of these two works with the iconic Tenniel illustrations when I was about seven or eight years old which I still have to this day and which has survived several cross country moves and multiple readings as a child not to mention several further readings as an adult The box set is a little worse for wear but still a prized possession in my library.I ve mostly refrained from rating reviewing children s books on simply because my childhood critical expectati [...]


    20. I never had the sort of parents who sat reading Lewis Carroll to me as I drifted off to sleep My parents weren t crackheads or slovenly brutes, they simply had different kids books So there Adventures in Wonderland was the funniest of the two it seemed madder, witter and sharper somehow, but Through the Looking Glass is none two shabby either It was fun to engage with the enormous critical debate around the books as I read, spurred on by the extensive endnotes and 40 page introduction, though th [...]


    21. I have no idea how many times I ve read watched various versions of this, but it was nice to listen to the entire two books novellas really as originally written All the bastardized versions tend to mix the two until I can t keep them straight.This is not the correct edition Mine is read by Christopher Plummer who does a great job, although the volume isn t well done Soft voices get too low to hear, but if I crank up the volume, the louder ones are too loud Jabberwock was especially well done Th [...]


    22. But I don t want to go among mad people, Alice remarked Oh, you can t help that, said the Cat we re all mad here I m mad You re mad How do you know I m mad said Alice You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn t have come here 150 years ago, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson welcomed a new Dean to Christ Church College, Oxford, along with his family, including the three daughters, Lorina, Edith and Alice Charles had been writing prose and poetry since a very young age, but it was young Alice Liddell who en [...]

Chcia abym o niej du o powiedzie , ale wydaje mi si , e nie mam tylu s w Jak mo ecie si domy la mi o mocno Alicji nie znosi am zar wno w Alice s Adventures in Wonderland , jak i w Through the Looking Glass raczej nic ju tego nie zmieni Ale kocham styl pisania Carrolla, jego wyobra ni , t niedorzeczno i przede wszystkim humor uwielbiam jego gry s owne i przedstawienie niekt rych postaci O tej ksi ce mo na by oby m wi i m wi i nigdy nie wyczerpaliby my do ko ca tematu Zdecydowanie bardziej podoba [...]


    24. How do you know I m mad said Alice You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn t have come here Yep, I m convinced that Lewis Carroll was a slimeball this documentary officially converted me youtube watch v _KQ9k but I think Alice s Adventures in Wonderland Through the Looking Glass was revolutionary.Fun fact I suffer with the same temporal lobe epilepsy as Lewis Carroll This entails hemiplegic migraines and hallucinations which are funnily enough referred to as Alice in Wonderland Syndrome During [...]


    25. This is one of those books that is fantastic when you are a child, but even remarkable when you reread it as an adult It is a bottomless pit of creativity and uniqueness and it ignites ones imagination in ways very few books can I didn t merely read this book, I went on that adventure with Alice in my own mind, creating gorgeous visuals from Carroll s lovely prose Such a delight.
