About Lewis Carroll

The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 - 1898) - clergyman, mathematician, logician and photographer, as well as author - wrote under the nom de plume of Lewis Carroll. He was the third of eleven children, the son of a mathematical genius who had chosen to become a country parson instead of following the formidable academic career mapped out for him. He was a very good looking boy but suffered from a bad stammer.
His most famous works are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and it’s sequel Through the Looking-glass and the poems The Hunting of The Snark and Jabberwocky which are all considered to come within the genre literary nonsense.

Through The Looking Glass and What Alice Found There Audiobook

Through The Looking Glass and What Alice Found There Audiobook
Written by Lewis Carroll
Read by Julia McKenzie

Star actress Julia McKenzie reads this unabridged audio book of Alice Through the Looking Glass, the second of Lewis Carroll’s whimsical tales following the character of Alice into a wild and fantastical world where nothing is as it should be and all systems of logic and reason seem to be turned upside down.

The story of how the adventures that Alice has in Wonderland came to be written, and the author’s association with the Liddell family – and Alice Liddell in particular – is now the stuff of legend. One summer afternoon in 1862, the author, in the company of the Reverend Robinson Duckworth, took the three Liddell sisters, Lorina Charlotte, Alice Pleasance and Edith Mary out in a rowing boat on the River Thames, near Oxford. On that boat trip, he entertained the girls by telling them a story about a bored little girl called Alice who goes looking for an adventure. Alice, aged 10, loved the story so much, she asked Dodgson to write it down for her.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Audiobook

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Audiobook
Written by Lewis Carroll
Read by Julia McKenzie

The Silksoundbooks audio book Alice in Wonderland, read by star actress Julia McKenzie starts with Alice on a rather unadventurous picnic...  but as her attention wanders she is suddenly brought face to face with a passing white rabbit who happens to be wearing a waistcoat and muttering to himself “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!”.

As he disappears down a rabbit hole and Alice, for want of anything better to do, follows him, she finds herself in Wonderland – a fantastical world where the characters Alice meets and the situations in which she finds herself have the whiff of symbol and allegory about them, but are much too funny to be pinned down as such.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland  is read by Julia McKenzie as an unabridged audiobook and is  perfect for children of all ages
