Description


FOLLOW HER IF YOU DARE

One of the best-known and most popular works of Victorian English fiction, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an 1865 novel written by English author Lewis Carroll. Translated into over 97 languages. Its characters and imagery have had a huge influence on popular culture and literature, and its ongoing legacy encompasses many adaptations for stage, screen, ballet, radio, art, theme parks, board games and video games. Due to Its play with logic the story has had lasting popularity with adults as well as children.

A young girl named Alice was tired of sitting by her sister, who was reading a book without any pictures, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. When Alice saw the rabbit take a watch out of his waistcoat-pocket and look at it, she jumped up and ran after him, as she had never seen a rabbit do such a thing before. Without thinking, she followed him through a rabbit hole and fell down a deep well into a subterranean fantasy world which was populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures.

Follow her if you dare, but beware of the world you are about to enter. You'll meet a childish, foul-tempered, decapitation-crazed Queen of Hearts, a strange, unintelligible duchess, a sleepy dormouse, a constantly late rabbit, a mischievous, witty Cheshire cat, a blue hookah-smoking caterpillar, a Hatter and a March Hare hosting a mad tea party, and a caucus race in which the participants run in patterns of any shape, starting and leaving off whenever they like, so that everyone wins. The best way to experience it and these amazing creatures is to read the book.
