Alice in Wonderland

Yesterday, I posted the White Rabbit's "I'm Late" song and I thought today I'd tell you about all the Alice in Wonderland related items we have in our collection.

There are the original books by Lewis Carroll: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; and, Through the Looking Glass with illustrations by John Tenniel [J CAR and eBook].
Lewis Carroll is the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898). He wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for the amusement of eleven-year-old Alice Liddell and her two sisters, who were the daughters of the dean of Christ Church College, Oxford, where Dodgson taught mathematics. The book was published in 1865, and its first companion volume, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, followed in 1871.

We also have other versions illustrated by different artists [J CAR].

There are adaptations for young readers such as the "Stepping Stones" version in eBook format, and, a stick-figure illustrated version by Jamison Odone [J ODO].

Of course there are several filmed and animated versions including the most recent one starring Johnny Depp [DVD ALI].

Also of interest may be The Other Alice: The Story of Alice Liddell and Alice in Wonderland by Christina Bjork [J 823 BJO] and The Lives of the Muses: Nine Women & the Artists They Inspired by Francine Prose [700 PRO].
