Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
(with 42 illustrations by John Tenniel)
Follow The White Rabbit!
The most popular Carroll’s story (also widely known as “Alice in Wonderland”) is surely familiar to everybody and really needs no annotation.
This beautiful fiction about adventures of a little girl in a strange and amazing land of nonsense and absurdity became more than just a funny story for kids. Now it is a source of unnumerable quotations, allusions, hidden meanings and philosophies. Acts of going down the rabbit hole or having a mad tea party can be found in one form or another in thousands of modern books, movies, TV shows, songs, posters, computer games, cartoons, etc., etc. The same is true for the book’s main characters like The Mad Hatter, The March Hare, The Queen Of Hearts, and of course The Cheshire Cat.
The most recent popular adaptations of this story are, for example, “American McGee’s Alice” computer game (2000) and “Alice and Wonderland” movie by Tim Burton (2010).
And in the meantime the story of Alice’s adventures continues in the “Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There” book.
