“Alice In Wonderland” by “Lewis Carroll”

This book was given to me when I was in Kindergarten around 5yrs, by my grandfather. I just simply loved the book with it’s full size color pictures and the magical world it took me to.

Synopsis taken from “Barnes &Noble”:

“The excitement begins when the well-mannered and sensible Alice follows an elusive White Rabbit down the hole to an wonderland. Along the way,the bewildered girl is given dubious advice from a haughty Caterpillar, an honored seat at a Mad Tea Party, and an invitation to the royal croquet match from a grinning Chesire Cat…….What to do?  When Alice steps through a mirror she walks into the fantastic realm of lunacy and nonsensical fun. During the journey she meets the unforgettable characters Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Walrus and the Carpenter and the Lion and the Unicorn. Fantasy blurs reality in a world where nothing is as it seems, populated by living chess pieces, talking flowers, and giant “Looking Glass” insects.”

This book still hold a special place in my heart. An escape to the magical world from the harsh reality of life whenever Iam feeling low…..
