Lovely, Quirky Classic
am 16. Juli 2017
My 9-yr old twins and I loved reading this classic together, for its absurdity, illustrations (by John Tenniel), and most especially the poems. We were impressed by 7-yr old Alice's impeccable manners, her notable vocabulary, and the entertaining word play evidenced throughout. There were constant surprises from page to page - oh ok so she's literally swimming in her tears? how do you balance an eel on your nose? they play croquet by hitting hedgehogs with flamingos? mock turtles, like a mock turtleneck shirt? Why don't authors today credit kids with the ability to read to this level? (that last question was mine, not my kids').
Also I have to say the introductory notes on Rev. C.L. Dodgson aka Lewis Carroll were incredibly interesting. Maybe someday when my kids grow up we'll discuss him, and his alleged pedophilia, etc.
