The two Alice books--Lewis Carroll's masterpieces--are ranked by many as peers of the great adult works of English literature. And despite their riches of "untranslatable" puns, nonsense, and parody, they have been happily translated around the world. The matchless original illustrations by Tenniel share with Carroll's text the glory of making Alice immortal.

Fun read for adults and children. It is different then the newly created movies of Alice in Wonderland with different characters and even some of the characters we know from the movies.

I agree, Definitely for the young at heart! I just love its total nonsense and yet the story has so much heart.
I have found that everyone who reads Alice feels particularly attached to different parts of the story... This may reflect badly on me but my favourite lines would have to be the most nonsensical: "Twas brillig/and the slithy toves/did gyre and gimbel in the wabe/all mimsy were the borogoves/and the mome raths outgrabe"... Curiouser and curiouser!

"I think I should understand that better," Alice said very politely, "if I had it written down? but I ca'n't quite follow it as you say it." Alice-Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

“Why, sometimes I've believed in more than six impossible things before breakfast.”
