"So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible." --Alice in Wonderland

This immensely witty and unique story mixes satire and puzzles, comedy and anxiety, to provide an astute depiction of the experience of childhood.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mystifying... The delightful twisted logic that Carroll is known for challenges you to question what you already know, or what you think you know, and forces you to appreciate ways of thinking that are not always definite and logical. An utter enchantment. I strongly recommend it for people of all ages, for the layers in which it can be read range from a shallow, but no less gratifying, entertainment for children to a complex social commentary of the Victorian era. The ways to interpret the stories are endless, and uncovering and debating all of these interpretations ensures innumerable interesting conversations
