Not your ordinary children’s book, story or heroine; Alice and the characters she encounters in Wonderland have illuminated the imagination of its visitors for over 150 years. Despite her obvious “age” Alice remains ageless, a youthful connection to the time when the reader could be precocious and bold. If only for a moment in their mind’s eye of the reader or simple turn of a page, Alice has found herself woven into the modern fabric.
