Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass - Lewis Carroll's complete masterpiece

On one happy summer day, July 4, 1862 to be specific, Charles Dodgson took Alice Liddell and her two sisters Lorna and Edith on a fateful boat trip along the Thames. The children asked him for a story full of “nonsense.” And so Charles began a tale about a girl named Alice who follows a waistcoat-wearing white rabbit down a wondrous rabbit hole. He would eventually refine that story and publish it in book form under the name Lewis Carroll – an author whose works, nonsense or not, would soon be quoted more than any other save Shakespeare and the Bible.

So follow the White Rabbit down the rabbit-hole again or for the first time, where more than 150 years later the wild characters of Lewis Carroll's imagination still wait for us: The grinning Cheshire Cat, the head-hunting Queen of Hearts, an obnoxious Caterpillar, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. Or stop in for tea with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, always through the eyes of the polite and ever-curious Alice always in search of more nonsense.
