Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Camille Rose Garcia Edition)

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll, Camille Rose Garcia Okay, I'm going to be completely honest, this book wasn't as captivating as I was hoping (insert a sad face here). This may be because I have visions of the different movie versions running in my mind. I did not like the animated Disney cartoon, but then I fell hard for the Tim Burton version. I digress.Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was truly, truly imaginative. Some of the words the author use gave me pause and put a smile on my face.The story made me wish to be a child again so I could read the story as a child and be awash in all the impossible possibilities.I will be reading the other Alice books and in my nerdiness I may research the background of Lewis Carroll and Alice.I must also include that the edition I read of Alice had the most uncanny and dreamlike illustration. Camille Rose Garcia is an amazing illustrator. Her artwork added so much to the telling of the story - much how I think Carroll intended it to be.*****Favorite quotes:“Why it's simply impassible! Alice: Why, don't you mean impossible? Door: No, I do mean impassible. (chuckles) Nothing's impossible!”***“‎You're not the same as you were before," he said. You were much more... muchier... you've lost your muchness". — Mad Hatter”***“Curiouser and curiouser.”***“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to." "I don't much care where –" "Then it doesn't matter which way you go.”***“She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it).”***“I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass***To read other book reviews, visit www.theycallmekeeks.com
