- Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was published over a century ago. Why do you think that the themes and characters of this book are still so widely known today?
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is an iconic children’s novel by British author Lewis Carroll. The story follows a young girl named Alice, who dreams about jumping down a rabbit hole and discovering a magical land. In this strange world, there are talking animals, cakes that can make Alice grow or shrink, and an evil queen who wants to behead her. The character of Alice was based on a real girl named Alice Liddell, who Carroll originally told the story to. The book was published in 1865, and while children at the time loved the story, many adults were confused by it. At the time that the novel was published, most children’s books included morals. In contrast to this, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was a fun story that had no clear meaning, and that was why children enjoyed it. Many adaptations of this book have been made, and the story is still loved by both children and adults today.
