Invitation to Wonderland


2015 marks 150 years since the publication of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. The White Rabbit, The Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat: who is your favourite Alice character? The strange world of Wonderland, the off-the-wall logic and the independent heroine are still fresh after 150 years. I love the original illustrations, many children will recognise the Disney version first and some may see the Mad Hatter as Johnny Depp. The best way to enjoy the story? ” ‘Begin at the beginning,’ the King said gravely, ‘and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”
To celebrate the anniversary, libraries are holding a series of Mad Hatter’s Tea Parties. All are free but please contact the library for more details and to book:
