It wasn’t until I was about eleven or twelve that I actually liked reading books the way I do now. I had maybe two books I read before then. One of them is still one of the best books I’ve ever read, and I read it all the time.
Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland’ is one of the most amazing novels I have, and probably will ever own. It’s so magical, I just get lost whenever I read it. First published in 1865 and loved ever since.
A young girl named Alice falls down a rabbit hole chasing a white rabbit. Alice lands in a weird place named, Wonderland. Alice goes on a journey through Wonderland where she meets a Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, The Caterpillar, and more. Until she meets with The Queen of Hearts; who isn’t the nicest of people.
‘Through The Looking Glass’ is one of the best ever too. I adore ‘The Walrus and the Carpenter’, a poem written by Lewis Carroll. It is featured in the 1951 Disney animated film – ‘Alice in Wonderland’. This version a small mash-up of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ and ‘Through The Looking Glass’. It’s one of my favourite Disney films of all time. It is a true classic. All of the little poems and rhymes in the books make me so happy.
Thanks for reading!
