""""And what is the use of a book,"" thought Alice, ""without pictures?"""" Certain to please even Alice herself, this new version of her famous adventures in Wonderland is brimming with wonderfully whimsical pictures by internationally acclaimed artist Lisbeth Zwerger. Her imaginative illustrations of the strange denizens of Wonderland--""from the Mad Hatter and March Hare to the Queen of Hearts and Cheshire Cat--""capture the inspired nonsense of Carroll's classic tale.

In 1862 Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a shy Oxford mathematician with a stammer, created a story about a little girl tumbling down a rabbit hole. Thus began the immortal adventures of Alice, perhaps the most popular heroine in English literature. Countless scholars have tried to define the charm of the Alice books–with those wonderfully eccentric characters the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum, and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, Mock Turtle, the Mad Hatter et al.–by proclaiming that they really comprise a satire on language, a political allegory, a parody of Victorian children’s literature, even a reflection of contemporary ecclesiastical history. Perhaps, as Dodgson might have said, Alice is no more than a dream, a fairy tale about the trials and tribulations of growing up–or down, or all turned round–as seen through the expert eyes of a child.

I loved this book so much that I named my bunny Alice. She is a white bunny with glowing red eyes! My favorite part is the tea party!

No, it isn't enough to see the Disney movie. You really should read the book, and the sequel, Through The Looking Glass And What Alice Found There.
