Book Excerpt: 
. . .Some dialects are objected to—
For one, the Irish brogue is:
And then, for all you have to do,
One pound a week they offer you,
And find yourself in Bogies!”

 

[Pg 34]

CANTO V. Byckerment. “Don’t they consult the ‘Victims,’ though?”
I said. “They should, by rights,
Give them a chance—because, you know,
The tastes of people differ so,
Especially in Sprites.”

The Phantom shook his head and smiled.
“Consult them? Not a bit!
’Twould be a job to drive one wild,
To satisfy one single child—
There’d be no end to it!”

“Of course you can’t leave children free,”
Said I, “to pick and choose:
But, in the case of men like me,
I think ‘Mine Host’ might fairly be
Allowed to state his views.”

I enjoyed Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, especially as this copy has fantastic replicas of the original drawings. Although the story is so familier, it was nice to actually read it at last. I couldn't get into the Sylvia and Bruno stories at all - I was totally lost after a coupl

Enchanting!!! I literally left little pieces of my heart on each passing page.

Wonderful fancy and imaginative stories fit for anyone and everyone. I finally got a good taste of the literature that so much of modern children's literature and fantasy in general are based on. Very fun and well-written stories and intermingled poetry.

Great stuff!!

Great classics.

4,75 stars - English hardcover - I have dyslexia -
Note in notebook : read some poems in my schoolsysteem. This book I read while I was au-pair in Bath.

Hermoso. Hace tiempo lo leí, siempre vuelvo a alguna historia.
Dulce y lleno de metáforas para salir cambiado, crecido cada vez que se cierra la última página. Lo recomiendo a quienes disfruran de esas narrativas inocentes cargadas de significado, los clásicos que envuelven una tarde cualquiera.

It's a long time since I last read the 'Alice' books, and I was struck by how matter-of-fact they are. Extraordinary things happen, without comment: this seems to me to be the model for all good fantasy, the world should be so well-formed within the writer's imagination that no explanation - or wors

Exhausting, nonsensical, but charming.

I presume it's much like having a small child, a little bag of sunshine that makes you smile for no reason, yet infuriates you at the same time for being so bloody nonsensical.
Carrol, and his Alice, much like young children in general find (and show us) wonder w
