Although written during the Victorian era, the adventures of the little girl who fell down a rabbit hole continue to have universal appeal today. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the story of a little girl who must face the challenges of growing up in an increasingly out-of-control world. Throughout her travels, Alice faces difficult situations.
Her curiosity in seeing a pocket-watch-carrying white rabbit and following it into the strange world is what initially lands her in a predicament. Having done so, however, Alice accepts the consequences and sets about finding her way, making decisions on where to go, what to eat and how to act.
Like any individual on the path to maturity, she does not always make the right choice, as when, in the white rabbit's house, she eats the biscuit and grows too large to get out of it.
Despite the challenges and setbacks, however, Alice perseveres, facing the threats and intimidation of the Queen of Hearts during the croquet game to grow large enough to overcome adversity and find her way back where she belonged.
Her story, in facing challenges and overcoming them, maturing in the process is familiar to child and adult alike. It accounts for its decades of continuing appeal, across continents and cultures, societies, and social divides.
Next to the Bible and the works of Shakespeare, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the most quoted book in the world.
Initially published in 1865, Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been a classic for generations. Alice goes on adventures with White Rabbit, the most famous literary character, defies the crazy and terrifying Queen of Hearts, and joins the entertaining Mad Hatter, plus many other strange creatures.
