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.
