They just don’t make children’s fiction like this anymore – I first read Alice in Wonderland in my early twenties, and I still highly enjoyed it. It’s easily up there amongst my favourite children’s books on top of the ones that I actually read in my childhood, and Lewis Carroll himself as influenced my own writing thanks to his love of the weird and the whimsical.
Alice in Wonderland has a lasting legacy and a long line of happy children who’ve discovered the classic collection of literary nonsense. I say ‘nonsense’, but while it can be nonsensical at times it’s nonsensical in an enjoyable way, unlike some of the weird stuff that flowed from the pen of William Burroughs. It’s a book that adults will love as much as children.
