Of course, a classic. The silliness and randomness of the book is genius. You can't not read it.
Review by aadyer
Started this with high hopes, & was pleased with the now familar scenes, & characters that one has come to expect. In all honesty though, this and it's sequel are a series of nonsense vignettes with some singing at times. Difficult for younger children to follow and not sure what sort of message, if any, it has for older children. Disappointing.
Review by Klefort
I absolutely love Lewis Carroll and I would gladly read anything with his pseudonym on it, regardless of length. Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass are both full of creativity and imagination. Even though you can find them in the children's section, I wouldn't recommend it for younger readers because it's not an easy read. It's more suitable, perhaps, for middle-school aged children. At the end of the book, we find out that Alice had been dreaming throughout the entire story. I find it curious that, at times, Alice can not understand the characters that her very own sub-conscience mind has made up. The characters that she meets in Wonderland often speak in riddles that have no answers, as Alice once pointed out. Certainly if Alice made up these characters, she of all people should be able to understand them. Just an interesting thought.
