Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

It’s been many years since I last read this book by Lewis Carroll.

This particular book is from the Dalmatian Press Great Classics for Children series.  Of course I turned to Chapter Seven first to read A Mad Tea Party.

Most of the illustrations are pen and ink drawings by Jason Alexander.

This Mad Hatter looks more bemused than mad.

This is a cute illustration of the Dormouse.

Too bad I can’t interest my grandsons in this book, but there are many classics more suited to the tastes of rough and tumble boys.

You know I never liked Alice in Wonderland. I think because as a child I saw the movie and frankly it scared me!

I like these drawings, and his "style" reminds me of a local illustrator I know. Nice!

I especially love the Dormouse. I recently read the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland. I am getting ready to do a Mad Hatters party in December.

Try photocopying the pictures and having the boys color them. Maybe that will inspire them to read it, or maybe you all could read it together, out loud whenever you are together? Just a thought...

Hootie, making coloring pages for the boys is a great idea. Thanks.
