Nobody really knows what makes a children’s books popular and why some don’t catch on. A book that has stayed relevant for over a century is Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland.
It all starts when a young girl named Alice falls into a rabbit hole and ends up in a bizarre fantasy world. The fantasy world is populated with talking animals that resemble people. Alice ends up wandering through the world drinking stuff she shouldn’t drink and experiencing impossible things.
There are many small adventures Alice ends up going on and meeting different animals. There are some themes that aren’t meant for kids and that is why a kids version of the book has been published. Adults as well as kids have enjoyed the novel thought the decades.
First published in 1865, the novel has remained in the mainstream ever since. There are numerous movies and adaptations of the popular children’s book. The idea for the book came when Lewis went on a boat ride with three little girls and told them the story of Alice in 1862.
What makes Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland great is that it is conceived for a child’s min but told by an adult so it also appeals to them. Its a wonderful book about wild adventures that children daydream about and adults can remember when they also used to do just that as a kid.
Reading this book makes you remember what it felt like to be a kid when the world was limitless. Maybe that’s why adults keep coming back to this book throughout the years. There’s a reason why The Chronicles of Narnia and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland have become classics and something most children end up reading at least once.
