When Alice tumbles down a rabbit hole one hot summer’s afternoon in pursuit of a White Rabbit, she finds herself in Wonderland. And here 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.
My Mum read this to me first time when I was little, and I was really surprised by how much I remembered. I’ve seen the Disney film a million times but I still managed to remember some bits that weren’t in it, my favourite being the Duchess which I remembered fondly anyway. I enjoyed it a lot this time round too, even though there was a page missing (it was the same copy, and used to belong to my Nanna). I don’t remember the ending being so disappointing though. I knew that [highlight for spoiler]she woke up and it was all a dream. But then it went into some stupid thing being all nostelgic about childhood which doesn’t have much point in what is meant to be a children’s book.
Still worth a read. I’m not sure whether to read Through the Looking Glass or not.
