Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

A true classic of English Literature, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a delightful read for all ages. Although many kids may have seen the Disney movie version of this book and think it childish, the original book actually gives a whole new dimension to the plot. Theories and mathematical concepts are incorporated into the character’s dialogue so that each sentence uttered is intriguing and interesting.

Alice is just sitting under a tree on a hot lazy summer day when she sees a rabbit… walking on two legs. What’s more, he’s talking to himself and has a pocket-watch that he takes out of his waistcoat pocket. She chases it down a rabbit-hole and enters into Wonderland, the land of nonsense and confusion. And so the adventure begins, with Alice meeting all sorts of funny creatures and doing all sorts of crazy things to get back home.

I really enjoyed this book and think it’s a great book for all ages: young kids will laugh at the characters and events and older ones will think more deeply into the meaning of each happening. I give it 9.5 stars since it’s a really good book that will erase the prejudice of “all classics are hard”.
