    I think that the failure not only of Children's Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child's mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind. Children are first protected from their culture--kept remote and safe--and then the...

    Then Alice saw a large wall in the middle distance. Someone was sitting on the top of it. When Alice had come within a few yards of it, she saw that the thing sitting on the wall had eyes and a nose and mouth and a large pile of golden hair; and when she had come very close, she saw cl...

    Randomness GALORE...! ...& yet, ISN'T THAT the reason the Disney tale is such a part of my early formative years? Obviously, the Disney film is a combination of both books. As Alice wakes in the first book from her wacky adventures that all but defies psychoanalysis, her si...

    Tenniel is usually held up as the perfect illustrator for Alice, but, fond as I am of his drawings, I do love these rather quirkier Peake illustrations. Some day I'll have to get around to reviewing the actual words. ;) Tenniel is usually held up as the perfect illustrator f...

    This is a weird one. The more I read the more I'm okay with the weirdness. Does that say something about me? I thought at first I wouldn't read it to my kids because it's too strange, but I'm thinking now I might. They just might like it. We'll see how it ends....

    Read both as a child, and again as an adult. Loved and appreciated it then; love and appreciate it now. A book everyone should read at least once, and one that I hope children are still reading today. ...

    For decades I?d figured that since I can sing along to Jefferson Airplane?s song ?White Rabbit? that I didn?t have to read the book. But I decided to do so and am glad I did, although I could not ever find where the dormouse said ?Feed your head.? Mostly, the dormouse jus...

    People love this. Not me. Does that mean I'm not people? Usually I like scatterbrained, nonsensical stuff and that's probably my problem: I don't get the references. At least some of the wild and crazy antics seem to happen to prove a point about the ridiculousness o...

    We're all a little mad here. This is one of THE children's classics that almost everyone on this planet knows or has at least heard of. There are numerous adaptations for the screen (small and large) but, as usual, the book is best. The story is that of young Alice, f...

    What kind of drug-addled haze was he on? I mean, sure, the author was a respected mathematician and all... OH, WAIT! Nevermind. The only thing that I can't quite wrap my head around is the fact he focused mostly on geometry. And he didn't live during the times of quantum t...

    ?But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can?t help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat...

    I was noticing a new friend?s book shelf and how he likes children?s books just as I do. He had read Alice in Wonderland. I had read it as a child. I ask myself: Did I really like that book back then? Was it just given to me and that was all I had to read? Did my mother pick my boo...

    What a bunch of codswallop! Trying to find something rational in these bizarre characters and perplexing adventures will result in one's disappointment, and indeed, you will find none of it. For if you were to put logical reasoning into the picture, you'll need heaps of Ibupr...
