Since the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1865 and Through the Looking Glass six years later, Lewis Carroll’s nonsensical tales have delighted the world with wildly imaginative and unforgettable journeys. While charming children with a heroine who represents their own feelings about growing up, the Alice stories are also appreciated by adults as a gentle satire on education, politics, literature, and Victorian life in general.

The book stands up through the ages, but the sound quality of the narration is terrible. So bad that we had to put the book off around the start of Through The Looking Glass when the narrator talks in Alice's voice. Nobody heard what was said, just a whisper with a bass. Too bad.
