Alice can't believe her eyes when a white rabbit wearing a waistcoat and carrying a pocket watch dashes by her. She chases after him, down a rabbit hole to a strange land full of exotic creatures, like the Mad Hatter and March Hare, a smiling Cheshire cat, a philosophical caterpillar, and a tempermental croquet-playing queen. Alice can hardly keep track of all the curious characters, let alone herself!

Lewis Carroll's classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been adapted to an easier reading level for Stepping Stones, while keeping all the fun, nonsense, and fantastic twists of the original book.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

About Lewis Carroll

See more books from this Author
Born in Daresbury, England,in 1832, Charles Luthwidge Dodgson is better known by his pen mane of Lewis Carroll. He became a minister of the Church of England and a lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was the author, under his own name, of An Elementary Treatise on Determinants (1867), Symbolic Logic (1896), and other scholarly treatises which would hardly have given him a place in English literature. Charles Dodgson might have been completely forgotten but for the work of his alter ego, Lewis Carroll. Lewis Carroll, shy in the company of adults, loved children and knew and understood the world of the imagination in which the most sensitive of them lived. So he put the little girl Alice Liddell into a dream-story and found himself famous as the author of Alice in Wonderland (1865). Through the Looking Glass followed in 1871. In recent years Carroll has been taken quite seriously as a major literary artist for adults as well. His works have come under the scrutiny of critics who have explained his permanent attractiveness in terms of existential and symbolic drama: The Alice books dramatize psychological realities in symbolic terms, being commentary on the nature of the human predicament rather than escape from it. In addition to his writing, Carroll was also a pioneering photographer, and he took many pictures of young children, especially girls, with whom he seemed to empathize.

The scatological repartee of Oliver Birch and John Biddle's Tweedledum and Tweedledee is enthusiastically embraced by younger members of the audience, and composer David Shrubsole's setting of the Lobster Quadrille is a delight.

Moreover, our heroine’s loopy headtrip begins with her fleeing a very public marriage proposal with the twenty-first-century excuse, ‘I need a moment…’ This is a loose, enjoyable and safe spin on the books, with familiar characters doing familiar things within the altered – and digitised – framew...

Open Salon

Possibly, my 3rd grade teacher is to credit for my interest in books since she would have a reading hour every Friday after lunch when we would all take turns reading out-loud paragraphs from a popular children's book.
