Alice in Wonerland has always been one of my favourites, and anything based off of it. However nothing beats the original, with such a weird and quirky storyline. I'm pretty sure this book is one if the most well known books ever, especially since there is such a big fan base over it.
This is the 5th time I've read it...

CaseyLea I love it too! 2mo
AmyTheBookdragon It's so good! 2mo

Went to Alice In the Village at Patriots Place in Foxboro. It‘s cute inside, but I like the one in Mystic, CT better.

mcipher I didn‘t know there were two! I still haven‘t been to the mystic one even though it‘s only like 15 minutes away 😳 2mo

I‘ve had this for a while and I have always wanted to read it. No time like the present I suppose. 🤷🏾‍♀️🙂

Billypar I had the same thought a couple months ago. Wonderland was so good- it really lived up to its classic status. I liked Looking Glass too but not as much. 3mo

A wonderful piece of TL passed down for years. The whimsical story of Alice going to wonderland is a fun story to share with your students. Students will love the ridiculousness in wonderland when Alice tries to find the rabbit and gets distracted along away. This book can be used in an author study with your students. This website can be used to retrieve information for the AS. https://www.lewiscarroll.org

Kcompton2912 The UDL principle 6.2, support planning and strategy development, and the ELL strategy 16, integrate speaking listening reading and writing activities, can be met with this book combined with the strategy and resource. #UCFLAE3414SU19 4mo
DrSpalding This is a classic! It‘s nice to have new books, but it is also nice to expose students to books that continue to be a part of pop culture. 4mo

The last time I was in Honduras, I would read this in hammocks on our breaks.

Also, you might not be able to tell from the picture, but this is a mini-edition, so that made it interesting 🤔.

Week 15: A book people lie about reading
Reading: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
I didnt know people lied about reading books until I googled a list and this one is number 1 apparently

Wonderland may not be a place you‘ll want to be - dangerous potions, execution-happy Queen, some rude animals..but Alice did have a marvellous adventure.

Shown above illustrations from the books from various illustrators.

It's weird to finally read a thing after absorbing cultural references since I was a kid. But it was still such a fun world to be immersed in. I liked the wordplay crossed with pure imagination in a landscape where anything can happen, however ludicrous. I read both books, and even though I liked Looking Glass, I didn't enjoy as much the first. The characters weren't quite as memorable and the action was more linear, given the chessboard world.

“Why, sometimes I‘ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”


Modern fantasy. These are perfect examples of the extreme whimsy that modern fantasy can bring. These stories would be great for older children or even read aloud to younger children. The fact that there are movies will make it even easier to read it to you get children.


Alices Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carrol, 1865/1871. These two stories are often lumped together as they are about the same world. This extremely colorful classic is full of crazy characters that children and adults have loved since their creation. These stories are whimsically charming and wonderfully eccentric.

I love the Alice in Wonderland playing cards that the hubs put in my Easter basket, and the little Cheshire cat Funko, too. ⏱🐇✨🍄

At Shanghai Disney, the Alice in Wonderland attraction is a walkthrough maze that is so beautifully chilling and immersive; complete with the most ominous music while you make your way through the rabbit hole into Wonderland. We met the creepy, stone-faced Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the elusive Cheshire Cat, felt swallowed up by the flowers, and had tremendous fun at the bizarre Mad Hatter‘s tea party. Here I am about to see the Red Queen 🌹♥️.

150 years ago, a mathematician from Oxford wrote a fairy tale about a little Englishwoman. Everyone knows this girl: she fell into a rabbit hole, she went through a mirror!

hhavel I actually saw the original Lewis Carroll manuscript of "Alice in Wonderland" on a trip to England several years ago. I think it is housed in the National Museum. The original manuscript itself is in a leather-bound journal book with incredible hand drawings by the author himself. He gave this book to a young girl he had been observing in his town. Somehow, the book ended up being one of the greatest stories in the English language. Thanks! 8mo

The detailed black and white sketches in this story add depth to the imagination and creativity in this tale.


This story was written in 1978 and published by Weathervane Books. I grew up with this tale. It is a modern fantasy about a young girl named Alice who finds herself stumbling into a strange and curious new world. It has disturbing and surrealistic characters that she much face on her adventures. It is full of magic and wonder.

post image

A classic that never gets old. Not exactly like the movies, so you should take the time to actually read them if you haven‘t

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

― Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

One of my favorite books, movie, and quote 🐇

post image

Alice is super annoying and if she just learned to close her mouth she could have avoided any and all the trouble she caused in both stories. These books really should be read in psychology classes. Lewis Carroll showcases many textbook characteristics of mental illness in his writing and I had quite a hard time NOT diagnosing him. I don‘t know what Disney was thinking. Overall the story is erratic and jumps quickly from one place to another.

I finally read the original Alice stories! What a trippy, weird adventure. I think I liked Wonderland better, but Through the Looking Glass was fun, too. There‘s a lot of humor, imagination, and general oddness—I have to say the original Tenniel illustrations are sort of creepy. My 7-year-old boy and I read this gorgeous edition together... he‘s a big fan of the Burton movie and loved the books!

Bonus: this counts as 2 #1001books!

JazzFeathers Alice in Womderland is one of my all time favourite books. The oddness is one of the things l love the most. I read Through the Looking Glass only once as a kid and never again because l liked it less than Wanderland, but recently l've read a few articles about it that picked my interest. It might be time for a reread. 11mo

🎧 I ❤️ Alice in Wonderland and have a few different audio editions of both AAIW and TTLG. Just started this one from *1995* with Michael Page narrating! MP is talking *very* fast so I‘m slowing the audio *down* to .75! The remastering from the original tape isn‘t very good so you have what sounds like talking in the background (print through.)

But for all that, it‘s still a story I love coming back to.
