I first read Alice’s Adventues in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass when I was in sixth grade. I remember absolutely loving them. For a while, it was one of my favorites, and I immediately bought The Annotated Alice. Now, I have finally reread it. First off, let me just say that I absolutely love The Annotated Alice. It’s so PRETTY. I also love all the footnotes, but I admit, I skipped some of the longer ones. The footnotes helped me appreciate the Alice books and Lewis Carroll. Now that I’ve reread this, I would love to read a biography on Lewis Carroll. I’ve heard all the rumors of him being a Victorian pedophile, but I’d love to learn more. Especially the mathematician, or should I say Charles Dodgson. Anyone know any good biographies? The only negative about The Annotated Alice is the size. It’s hard to really curl up and read it. A paperback edition would be nice.
