Alice in Wonderland
Young Alice leads an ordinary sort of life until, one day, she follows a rabbit down a hole and embarks on a series of adventures with some of the most weird and wonderful characters anyone has ever encountered! She soon discovers that nothing is ordinary in Wonderland, least of all the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat, the Duchess, and the Mock Turtle.

Through the Looking Glass
Alice sees another world in the looking glass and wishes she could go there, but when her wish comes true she embarks on a game of chess like she's never known before! Her aim is to become the Queen of the Chess Board, and in order to achieve it she takes counsel from Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Lion and the Unicorn, and a very helpful gnat.

Alan Bennett's delightful readings beautifully complement the sparkling wit and intelligence of Lewis Carroll's enduring children's classics. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I really don't understand the super high ratings on here. I hated it when I read it years ago, and while I didn't feel the same contempt re-reading it now, it still wasn't enjoyable. While I respected Carroll's ability to manipulate words for his characters' nonsensical tales, I found it difficult to endear myself to any of the characters, so I never really connected with the book. Though young and naive, Alice is a snot, and her continued failure to reach any logical conclusions in a illogical world did little to bring out any sympathy in me. It isn't horrible...yet beyond Carroll's command of the English language, there was little positive content for me. "

    " Even though I took such a long time, it was still a good read. It's just that classics take a lot of concentration. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Safi Deschanel | 2/5/2014

    " Without words, an absolute classic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 1/30/2014

    " I've heard the stories all my life so I thought I'd better read it. It is weird. I think the author was making up a story for a child then wrote it all down, but it kind of meanders about. Other children's books are better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 1/25/2014

    " Lovley Childbook ! Wish i would have read this when i was a kid ! 4/5 ! Im going to read the sequal :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura Ender | 1/25/2014

    " There are definitely good parts and I see why it's a classic, but at the risk of blaspheming a beloved children's work, I'd say the movie makers created more cohesive stories from Lewis Carroll's nonsense than he ever did. This would be a good bedtime book, as many scenes ramble on and on without making sense or being particularly clever and make no contribution to the plot as a whole. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumn Heisler | 1/21/2014

    " Just a great story to get lost in. Other worlds fascinate me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine Sas | 1/16/2014

    " Love it more every time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 May-Ling | 1/14/2014

    " this book deserves a high rating simply for its imaginative breadth and having such a strong-willed female protagonist. i've only seen alice in film adaptations, so it was interesting to read the stories, especially since so much of the magic is based on the wordplay elements. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirin | 1/7/2014

    " I liked a little bit "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/14/2013

    " I absolutely hated this! It's in the top five worst books I've ever read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shin Machine | 12/14/2013

    " basically a story of a girl so bored she had made up such a fantastic world of finite nonsense. The perils of drugs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/6/2013

    " Love these two adventures in magic, beauty, and humor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara Furtado | 8/18/2013

    " I've read this so many times, I love this book. I do like some of the re-makes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Kokko | 6/10/2013

    " This classic children's tale is darker than the Disney movie. A must read to find out the author's original story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kiki Tse | 5/19/2013

    " Most wonderful book I've ever read ;). "

    " One of my fav novels "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefanie | 11/19/2012

    " This edition is excellent. Love the illustrations, though I think that Looking-Glass is much better than Wonderland. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reema | 9/13/2012

    " This is the most cutest book if ever read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renee | 9/12/2012

    " I know this is a classic but I didn't really like it all that much. This is one case in which I'd rather watch the movie then read the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne O'donnell | 2/28/2012

    " Although this book is imaginative and 'colorful' I never enjoyed it. Too disjointed for me "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 12/20/2011

    " A fantastical kind of book. I think I definately enjoyed the book more than the movie. I have never really knew that there was a second book. It was a neat read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles Bechtel | 9/20/2011

    " If allowed one book, this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bobby | 6/3/2011

    " It's a brilliant, somewhat demented story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/23/2011

    " Not the most memorable book, just one of those that one should read in order to expand the imagination. Interesting writing style. Not much to be said about it really. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sadie | 5/20/2011

    " It was fascinating. The adventure, the poems, and the made-up words! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia | 5/19/2011

    " I've read "Alice" five or six times. It is my favorite book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 5/18/2011

    " First in a long line of classics I should have read ages ago!

    Delightful and witty, this was far more enjoyable than I expected. The puns were fantastic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yorky | 5/17/2011

    " Loved this book soooo much - its so random!! My only regret is reading it on my iphone and therefore not getting illustrations I would say if you are going to read this make sure there are pictures go along with!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire | 5/16/2011

    " It takes some perseverance to get through this, and really I checked out after the mock turtle. I don't really understand this book, the ending was abrupt and I'm just glad for disney's version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 5/16/2011

    " I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I would think twice about reading it with or to smaller children due to the queen's actions and comments. I could see how that would scare little ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 5/15/2011

    " Reading this on my Kindle - love Lewis Carroll's way with words - unfortuneately, missing the illustrations!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 George | 5/14/2011

    " My only gripe was the way the book was written, but that's a given considering the time it was first conceived.

    A wonderful tale nonetheless (or series of tales, for that matter). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 5/13/2011

    " More than the actual plot of the story, I enjoyed watching the though process of the author unravel into such odd charters and scenarios. The dialogue was very entertaining, it made you think about the words in a different way as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 5/10/2011

    " What a curious little book. "

Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), English author, mathematician, and photographer. One of eleven children of a scholarly country parson, he studied mathematics at Oxford, obtained a university post, and then was ordained as a deacon but found true success with his masterpiece, Alice’s Adventures Under Ground, now known as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which originated as a story told to a young friend, Alice Liddell, during a boating trip on the Thames. Among his other works are Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, The Hunting of the Snark, and Jabberwocky.
