For all ages.

December 2, 2009

I have been thinking about the story Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Annotated Alice. I am wondering, have you ever watched a children’s cartoon? If so, you have probably noticed that the creators of the show always make it entertaining for the adults watching, but also keep the attention of the kids. They usually keep the kids’ attention by using cartoons of animals or objects that w0uld not talk in real life. Like SpongeBob SquarePants, we all know a Sponge or Star fish cannot speak. The same thing goes for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The way it was written was for the children, but with the adults watching, they would understand the real meanings.

This is how we have The Annotated Alice. Lewis Carroll was telling a story he wanted people to discover. In the beginning he used a rabbit  that was talking about how he was late, and throughout the book the use of talking animals continued.

Little do children know, there is so much more behind them.
