Carroll's Alice in Wonderland is as memorable for its riddles and rhymes as it is for its rich cast of characters. Notable among them is Alice herself, an exceptionally curious and brave little girl who follows the White Rabbit down his hole and into the fantastical world of Wonderland. Ruled by the temperamental Queen of Hearts, Wonderland pushes Alice to push past logic and work toward creative and humorous solutions to social problems. Very Good + in Very Good + dust jacket.
