Alice in Wonderland

  • Book Title: Alice in Wonderland
  • Written By : Lewis Carol

My comments:

This book, written by Lewis Carol, tells the history a young girl who accidentally falls into a series of extraordinary adventures in Wonderland. The action begins when she follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole as it coughs her attention because of its ability to talk. Immediately after, she takes a way, where she would meet the most insensible animals, who do not only speak but also are positively argumentative, like the Mad Hatter and the Hookah-smoking Caterpillar. While she is lost in this country where riddles have no answer and song turn into nonsense, she finally has to tolerate some threats of execution by the Queen of Hearts. However, the self- possessed Alice is able to cope with everything she meets.
In my opinion, this compelling book is full of amazing characters that make it one of the most appealing children classics.

Have you tried reading the online version of this book? It is the original one, as illustrated by Lewis Carroll himself! It even includes audio... It won't work on a slow connection, though..
Hope you can enjoy it!
