Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Lewis Carroll ~ Illustrated by John Tenniel1965
Lookie, Lookie what I scored! I have been on the hunt for a vintage reading copy of this book forever. After several failed attempts at finding a decently priced readers copy online, I lucked out and found one at the Good Will for next to nothing! Literally it cost nothing! It was buy one get one free day and the hubby was scrounging in his usual area, while I lingered in the kid’s books section, and he just happened past it. It is the most perfect little copy in that it has the original illustrations by Mr. Tenniel. The pages have this rustic quality to them and it came with a dustjacket, which is nice because I prefer the hardcover illustration and anything that helps preserve it is fine by me!
I was uber obsessed with the animated Disney adaptation and I sat thru the movie version but unfortunately, I have never read the actual book, so I am ready to dig in and delve into the literary world of Alice’s adventures in wonderland! They even found a way to make the text whimsical!
So now that I have it in my possession I got to thinking about my sister’s 30th birthday. The theme for her party is “The mad hatter’s tea party.” Which then reminded me of gwen Stefani’s video. It’s couture, meets harajuku , meets vogue circa the 1800’s (If such a thing existed) In a nutshell, it’s going to be one mean soiree! Anyhoo, I am rambling on and on……. I’m just going to shut my mouth and read my book now :) Please enjoy the video……
