Salvador Dali drawings in this 150th Anniversary edition. So unlike (of course) any other depictions of Alice! Loved the gowned girl with the jump rope motif (see also Dali separate work “Destino” video he made during his brief stint in Disney studios in 1940’s). Have not seen these Dali drawings in any other Alice edition. ( )

Alice spies a white rabbit with a watch in its waistcoat pocket and curious at such an oddity, follows it down its rabbit's hole into a land full of wondrous and strange things.

The classic story is told here by the wonderfully versatile Jim Dale, who seems to have no end of unique and interesting voices in his repertoire. What the tale loses in lack of Tenniel's illustrations, it makes up for with auditory cues. Children who love talking animals and absurd fantasy are sure to delight in this book -- and this audio version of it will appeal to those who love having stories read aloud to them. ( )

Alice spies a white rabbit with a watch in its waistcoat pocket and curious at such an oddity, follows it down its rabbit's hole into a land full of wondrous and strange things.

The classic story is told here with a full cast of actors to voice the characters. What it loses in lack of Tenniel's illustrations, it makes up for with auditory cues. The actor who sings for the Mock Turtle has a particularly lovely voice, but all do a good job with this silly story. Children who love talking animals and absurd fantasy are sure to delight in this book -- and this audio version of it will appeal to those who love having stories read aloud to them. ( )

It's just a delicious, borderline hallucinatory, confection of a book. Invention and imagination tumble over each other in the excitement, and there is something in there to delight every reader. There are countless plays on words (the mouse giving a very dry lecture on William the Conqueror to restore those who have been soaked by Alice's gigantic tears is the one that, for some reason, pleased me most), verbal pyrotechnics and semantic shenanigans to please the "ordinary" reader. And although they entirely passed me by at the time, I know now from various more scientifically-minded friends that their childish interests snagged on the mathematician author's various numerical and logic puzzles.

Epigraph
All in the golden afternoon
Full leisurely we glide;
For both our oars, with little skill,
By little arms are plied,
While little hands make vain pretense
Our wanderings to guide

Ah, cruel Three! In such an hour,
Beneath such dreamy weather,
To beg a tale of breath too weak
To stir the tiniest feather!
Yet that can one poor voice avail
Against three tongues together!

[plus another five verses]
Dedication
First words
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"
Quotations
And she tried to fancy what the flame of a candle looks like after the candle is blown out, for she could not remember ever having seen such a thing.
'Curiouser and curiouser!' cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English); ...
How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spread his claws,
And welcome little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!
'Ahem!' said the Mouse with an important air, 'are you all ready? This is the driest thing I know. Silence all round, if you please! "William the Conqueror, whose cause was favoured by the pope, was soon submitted to by the English, who wanted leaders, and had been of late much accustomed to usurpation and conquest. Edwin and Morcar, the earl of Mercia and Northumbria -"'
'You are old, Father William,' the young man said,
'And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head -
Do you think, at your age, it is right?'

Haiku summary
Down the rabbit hole,
Alice ponders madness that
unfolds strange places.
