As everything grows 'curiouser and curiouser', Alice is delighted to find that nothing in Wonderland is the least bit ordinary.

Alice in Wonderland is a very old but interesting book about a girl who has an adventure. This book is written by a very amazing author called Lewis Carroll. This bookies very imaginative. I would recommend this book to anyone at the age of 9 and above becasue there can be some parts that are confusing and you might not get it.

The chapter that I found the best was 'The Queen Of Hearts' which is chapter 18 because the was heaps of detail in that chapter and also because the are heaps of characters in it. I recommend that chapter to 9 year olds and over.

The chapter that I found the worst was 'The Tale of the Mouses Tail' because the mouse never even explained the story and it gets quite frustrating because all you want to do is listen to the story.

I finished reading Alice's adventures in wonderland by Lewis Carroll and I thought it was really good it used good fantasy elements and how they were put into the book was really good. As an example they used a talking cat and it fitted really well into the story because the cat helped Alice get to where she had to go and it helped her get out of situations because of its power to teleport anywhere it wanted to go. The rabbit could talk and he was in most of the book he talked Alice into doing things that she needed to do and he brought Alice through the portal and that being said he was a very important character in the story and I think if he wasn’t in the story wouldn’t of been the same.

I enjoyed the book because it had a really good story line and it used really go fantasy elements in it. I liked how it represented fantasy in a different way to other books do and that it put all the characters in at the write time and they all had a very important role as an example the hatter was put in half way through the book at I prime time, during the tea party Alice met the hatter and he sent her to the red queens castle witch lead her to do more things that she needed to do but I won’t go into more detail about the book, I think that it was an amazing book and I really liked it. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a short fantasy book.      I finished reading Alice's adventures in wonderland by Lewis Carroll and I thought it was really good it used good fantasy elements and how they were put into the book was really good.

Alice in Wonderland is one of the most famous children’s books ever written. It became a success from the moment it was published, in 1865. Since then, it has been translated in 80 languages, adapted for theatre, television, and today it is one of the most quoted works in English literature.

It is the story of a young girl named Alice. As she is sitting on the riverbank of the Thames, she sees a white rabbit with a waistcoat that is talking to itself, pass by. Alice follows it out of curiosity until she enters a rabbit-hole and starts falling down slowly. When the little girl eventually lands, she is in a room with a table and a key on it. A little door leads into a wonderful garden. But it is so small she can’t go through.

She then notices a small bottle labeled “Drink me” on the table. Alice drinks it and becomes very small. But she forgot to open the door and cannot reach the key. She now eats a cake labeled “eat me” and become very big. As she is confused she cries and then tries to cool herself with the white rabbit’s fan. She soon shrinks so much she is forced to swim in her own tears. She then meets other animals and gets out of the water. The Mouse wants to tell a dry story in order to dry but the Dodo suggests a caucus-race.

When she is dry, Alice enters the garden. She goes to a house and drinks from a bottle, making her grow again. She is so big she cannot get out and all the animals gather to make her leave. They throw pebbles at her, which are in fact pieces of cake. She eats one and shrinks again.

She runs from the house into the wood and meets a huge puppy and later the Caterpillar sitting on a mushroom and smoking a hookah. The caterpillar tells her that eating one side or the mushroom will make her either shrink or grow.

Then she finds a cottage where a Fish-Footman delivers an invitation from the Queen to play croquet to a Frog-Footman. She enters and meets the Duchess in the kitchen with her baby. A cook is making a soup and is putting a lot of pepper making the air unbearable. The baby is crying so Alice takes it outside where it changes into a piglet. She leaves him and runs into the woods until she comes upon the Cheshire cat, a grinning, but mysterious animal. He doesn’t appear all at once, and his grin is the first thing Alice sees.

Alice goes on until she meets the mad Hatter and the March Hare, who are having a tea party with a sleeping Dormouse. Alice finds them confusing because they ask riddles to which there is no answer and pretend that there is no room for her whereas there is.
