about

One day the thought occurred to me: Why should the splendid jokes and poems strewn throughout Lewis Carroll’s gigantic novel "Sylvie and Bruno" languish ignored and forgotten, when they could be put into the mouths of the Alice characters we all know and love? After all, the same wit and humour underpins them. And so, Carpenter-like, I began sawing and assembling; and, Walrus-like, began selecting the oysters of nonsense of the largest size. And now in your hands you hold the result. By using the Key found in "Sylvie and Bruno" the door has been opened for a new adventure for Alice. A new Alice book that is 95% pure Carroll. -- Allan William Parkes
