New edition of this Victorian classic, here presented in its true adult context for the first time. In his introduction, Jeremy Reed highlights the psychedelic nuances of the text, revealing how Lewis Carroll's vivid imagery exerted a strong influence on various '60s songwriters, and questions how the literature of this Victorian eccentric was casually assimilated into children's literature. A Creation edition of a remarkable book.

This is better than the movie the auther did a wonderful job
Honestly, I am not sure I got the story!I loved the crazy writing but the story was so confusing. It felt like a lot of short stories linked together with some random element,It is a poor relation of alice in wonderland (which I loved).
