Book Review: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll - Reviewed by Romi Foster (15 Jul 2011)
Alice is a dreamy, carefree girl, who tiresomly learns her school lessons and loves playing games, especially with her kitten. But one day, she follows a strange, talking and pocket watch looking at rabbit, and falls down a big, wide, deep and very odd hole, a rabbit hole indeed. And nothing is the same from that time forward. Alice meets a marvalous range of odd and wonderful creatures with songs to sing, rhymes to tell, poems to recite and stories to mope over. Alice is very sensible and hardly faulters in this strange new world, but she does wish to be back in her old life. And eventually, after meeting so so many strange animals and hearing many many strange new words, Alice get's her wish.
Author Biography - Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-98), grew up in Cheshire in the village of Daresbury, the son of a parish priest. He was a brilliant mathematician, a skilled photographer and a meticulous letter and diary writer. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, inspired by Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church in Oxford, was published in 1865, followed by Through the Looking-Glass in 1871. He wrote numerous stories and poems for children including the nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark and fairy stories Sylvie and Bruno. Chris Riddell, the 2015-2017 Uk Children's Laureate, is an acclaimed artist of children's books and a political cartoonist for the Observer. Amongst other titles, Chris illustrates the Ottoline young fiction series and the Goth Girl series, as well as working closely with Paul Stewart on the Edge Chronicles and Wyrmeweald. He has won many awards for his work, including the Nestle Gold Award, the Costa Children's Book Award 2013, the UNESCO Award for Something Else and the rare honour of two Kate Greenaway Medals.
