************This week's letter for A-Z Wednesday is "A." So I went to my shelves, and this is what I pulled out.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll (first published 1865)
1. Book Details at Wikipedia
I'm assuming just about everyone is at least a little familiar with the story of the little girl who falls down a rabbit hole and has amazing adventures in Wonderland. If not, you should grab a copy and read it right now. But the Wikipedia entry has a very thorough synopsis.3. And a sampling of the many covers the book has sported over the years:
Of course, the book is almost always paired with its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass (and What Alice Found There), published in 1872. That second Alice book has always been my favorite of the two. As a child, I was absolutely fascinated by the possibility of stepping through that mirror into a strange and lovely (and dangerous) new world. But if you haven't read either book, Wonderland is definitely the place to start.
