    I think that the failure not only of Children s Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child s mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind Children are first protected from their culture kept remote and safe and then they are thrust incongruously into a world that they have been told is unsafe and unsavory and we expected them not to blanch.It has been my policy that the best literature for children is not a trifling thing, not a simplification of the adult or a sillier take on the world Good Children s literature is some of the most difficult literature to write because one must challenge, engage, please, and awe a mind without resorting to archetypes or life experience.Once a body grows old enough, we are all saddened by the thought of a breakup We have a set of knowledge and memories The pain returns to the surface Children are not born with these understandings, so to make them understand pain, fear, and loss is no trivial thing The education of children is the transformation of an erratic and hedonistic little beast into a creature with a rational method by which to judge the world.A child must be taught not to fear monsters but to fear instead electrical outlets, pink slips, poor people, and lack of social acceptance The former is frightening in and of itself, the latter for complex, internal reasons I think the real reason ...

    THIS BOOK IS MY DREAM.It s Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, plus Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, plus a ton of critical analysis and fun facts and biographical info and poetry and background and cultural and period information and bonus illustrations and basically all you need or could ever want to know, except if you re me and your love for and curiosity about Alice and Lewis Carroll and Wonderland will never be satiated.And also it s about a square yard and the font is tiny and it weighs about 30 pounds and takes an eternity to read.I loved this so much that it made my heart hurt to finish it My version of paradise is probably something like this, where I m alternating between reading the original text I love than anything and eloquent, wise, humorous elaboration on things I had never known The I learned, the I wanted to know.I guess you could say I grew curiouser and curiouser.I love myself.Anyway, my bookmark for this book was a folded up sheet of lined paper on which I wrote down the titles and works of art and research queries I wanted to know about as I read I filled up both sides of that sheet.Absolutely every aspect of this book is gorgeous and curated and fascinating I don t really know how to review this because it basically transcended reading for me It was just a perfect experience.Bottom line If you love Alice like I do, or really really like it, you need to read thi...

    Dreams , figments of the wondrous mind, what things can it createA little girl named Alice, 7 with her big sister a few years older, sitting on the banks of the gentle river Thames, on a calm , warm sunny day, in 1862 how delightful , still she is bored watching her sibling read a book, not paying any attention to her, with no pictures, imagine that getting sleepyOut of nowhere a nervous White Rabbit dashes by Alice, no big deal even though it has clothes on, not thinking it peculiar when the animal speaks, looking at a watch, and declares he will be late to an important party Intrigued the child follows the rapid rabbit down a large hole, a long tunnel , soon finding a precipice, then falling and falling, the never ending drop continues as the frightened girl starts to believe, maybe, quite possible , arrive finally on the other side of the world, welcome Australia Nevertheless landing safely in a pile of leaves, unhurt Alice in a strange hall sees a bottle that says drink me She the brave girl does, being much too big, for this land,...

    Once she remembered trying to box her own ears for having cheated herself in a game of croquet she was playing against herself, for this curious child was very fond of pretending to be two people If I ever had to choose to be another literary person than my beloved soulmate Don Quixote, it would have to be Alice in Wonderland Why would I need to be another character than the one and only Don Well, it is good to have a backup if you are asked to come to a masquerade as a favourite book character a not completely unlikely risk and side effect of my profession , and you realise that your blonde hair and the emphasis on blue dresses in your wardrobe makes that a much natural choice than the Medieval male dresscode of La Mancha.On the other hand, Alice is a perfect complement to the Don in many ways While he sets out to give the ordinary world some magic, she dives into Wonderland to make it sparkle with her common sense approach to madness A perfect pair, those two characters In times like these, they are needed than ever, to fight the windmills or Jabberwockys of modern craziness As coffee is a means of survival to me, and I like the idea of drinking it out of a mug featuring an illustration of a famous tea party as nonsensical as most, but fun I once went to London and bought myself a Mad Hatter mug, the handle nicely formed like one of those keys Alic...

    Curiouser and curiouser edition This is the annotated edition, collecting both novels in the Alice book series Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice found There. WE RE ALL MAD HERE Begin at the beginning This was technically a re reading since I ve already read both novels previously, the key difference here was that this is an annotated edition, which includes a comprehensive section, at the end of each chapter, with tons of notes revealing behind the scenes detailing moments in the life of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson aka Lewis Carroll , the real meaning of scenes, the real inspirations for several of the characters in both novels, historic meaning in the Victorian England of casual expressions that got outdated nowadays, studies in the metrics of the poems included in the novels, etc I don t think Then you shouldn t talk It was a curiouser and curiouser reading experience since this was my first annotated edition of any book, and I believe that if you want to engage into this sort of books, it s advisable having read the regular version of the novel f...

    Read both as a child, and again as an adult Loved and appreciated it then love and appreciate it now A book everyone should read at least once, and one that I hope children are still reading today.

    Then Alice saw a large wall in the middle distance Someone was sitting on the top of it When Alice had come within a few yards of it, she saw that the thing sitting on the wall had eyes and a nose and mouth and a large pile of golden hair and when she had come very close, she saw clearly that it was TRUMPTY DUMPTY himself It must be him because that s what is written on his baseball cap, she said to herself He was already speaking to her They said I wouldn t build the wall and I built the wall They were wrong because they weren t right Really really really great wall I m sure it is, said Alice What is it for Believe me, this is the greatest wall there ever was, I m sure it is, said Alice, but please, what is it for The people, there were people, who said the wall would never be built, they were not smart people, as you see, the wall is right here, it is extremely extremely here, believe me Yes, I do see that it is, but please, said Alice, getting rather impatient, what is it for Those people, there were so many many of them, they said the wall was never ever ever going to be built, that s what they said, you can check that, it s there in the record They were really really not smart those people Everyone here can see that this is a great great day That i...

    But I don t want to go among mad people, Alice remarked Oh, you can t help that, said the Cat we re all mad here I m mad You re mad How do you know I m mad said Alice You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn t have come here 150 years ago, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson welcomed a new Dean to Christ Church College, Oxford, along with his family, including the three daughters, Lorina, Edith and Alice Charles had been writing prose and poetry since a very young age, but it was young Alice Liddell who encouraged him to write down the stories he had made up for her and her sisters, thus Alice s Adventures in Wonderland was published and has since been a stalwart in children s reading treasuries.Charles, or famously known by his alias Lewis Carroll, was an extraordinary man, graduating from Oxford with a first in Mathematics and going on to study and teach at Oxford, where he remained until his death in 1898 Not only did he write, but he was an early pioneer of photography and also painted He predominantly wrote short stories and poems, but Alice s Adventures in Wonderland was a longer version of his unique writing style, and was published in 1865 to great acclaim H...

    What a bunch of codswallop Trying to find something rational in these bizarre characters and perplexing adventures will result in one s disappointment, and indeed, you will find none of it For if you were to put logical reasoning into the picture, you ll need heaps of Ibuprofen to pacify that throbbing headache of yours, which I did on my first day of reading Alice s adventures By the second day, I ve decided to throw out the logical and embrace lunacy for Pete s sake It was better and made me curiouser and curiouser as I trot along after Alice Lewis Carroll was a genius Whoever knew that such an intelligent man would be able to weave both the creative and logical parts of the brain and come up with a classical, nonsensical tale that is beloved or disliked by both children and adults alike The tales are imaginative and dreamy or nightmare ish depending on one s view, as it was a nightmare for me and the word play is ingenious Utter madness, these stories are But it doesn t...
