If you read this as a child, saw Disney’s version, which takes bits from both, or seen any of the other cartoons then you must read them again as an adult – you’ll get so much more out of them.  Just the precision of language alone is a joy – something the films can’t give you in the same way, and if it’s only the films you’ve seen then you don’t know Alice at all and have missed a treat.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland AND Through the Looking Glass Synopsis

Alice is one of the most beloved characters of English writing. One boring summer afternoon, Alice, a bright and inquisitive child, follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole. At the bottom she finds herself in a bizarre world full of strange creatures, and attends a very odd tea party and croquet match.

 

Lewis Carroll's beloved and witty story was made into an animated film by Disney in 1951. It is also the inspiration for Tim Burton's 2010 film, where an adult Alice returns to the peculiar world she discovered as a child. The film features Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway among a cast of British stars.
