Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass were some of my favorite books when I was a child. They are still wonderfully imaginative stories. The illustrations in the different editions evolve with the times; I find that interesting. Unfortunately, the author's photography of nude girls has resulted in my looking for hidden meanings in these old familiar stories. Sometimes it is better not to learn more about an author's personal life.

This has always been on my favorite list. Alice in wonderland opened a world that is actually out of the norm from the different princess stories i have come to know. So it is quite odd and fascinating to follow her tale, whatever meaning it has.

But it is nice to know that there is more to it than just the silly ideas from a young girl's point of view.

This book was just too odd for me. It felt like the author was on a rug trip when he wrote it.
