From one Alice fanatic to others,I reccomend reading Alice's Adventures Under Ground. Not only is it a different style of actual writing, but it also has great pictures. If this is your first Alice book then it's a great starter with the original story. Carrol did an awsome job with the detailed discriptions of the fun and wacky characters. Just remember to let your imagination run wild. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Alice's Adventures Under Ground
Virtually EVERYONE has seen adaptions of Alice by Lewis Carroll.
If you want to read the real stories I say get the one with the forward by THE EXPERT on Lewis Carroll AND Alice
MARTIN GARDNER... 1914 - 2010 A REAL POLYMATH RIP My thoughts are with you and yours.
I found Mr Gardner's Scientific American column back in high school. It was tough waiting for the next month, so I was going back in old issues and getting his books on so many topics... from magic... to Lewis Carroll & Alice plus advanced math topics I thank you for feeding my multiple interests...
I strive to be a fraction of the renaissance man that you are I found about his formal education much later. "His mathematical writings intrigued a generation of mathematicians, but he never took a college math course. " My respect increased even more. I recently found out he edited Humpty Dumpty pushing his influence far further back than I ever realized.
