8 Editions of Alice In Wonderland That Every Child Should Have In Their Collection

Imagine a cake that can make you grow to the size of a house and a drink that can shrink you to the size of an ant. Imagine a cat that can fly, float and disappear into thin air. A man who makes hats but who’s off his rocker and a pair of twins who complete each other’s sentences. Oh, there’s also the Queen of Hearts, who loves yelling, “Off with his head”. You’ll find all of these weird, whacky characters and other things in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, which was first published in 1865 and still remains a literary gem. The book sparked numerous adaptations and interpretations across the globe. The novel takes its readers down a rabbit hole and into the world of fantastical creatures, nonsensical escapades, and dreamlike landscapes.

The Whimsical Universe of Wonderland

Wonderland is a realm where logic hops on the backseat and imagination drives. From the cryptic Cheshire Cat to the eccentric Mad Hatter, each character embodies a unique personality reflecting upon the various facets of human nature and societal absurdities. The Queen of Hearts is the perfect embodiment of arbitrary authority, while the anxious White Rabbit represents the omnipresent fear of time slipping away.

It is these themes that leave an indelible mark on the readers, inspiring our curious minds to question the culture and society we are a part of.

That being said, let’s explore the various editions available for you at Kunzum Books.
