In 1862, during a boating party on the Thames River, a young Englishman named Lewis Carroll entertained three little girls by spinning a wondrous story of a disappearing cat, a mad tea party, and a croquet-playing Queen of Hearts. The story so enchanted one of the girls that she begged him to put it in writing. The result was overwhelming fame and fortune for the author and a beloved fantasy classic for children's literature. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has captivated generations of children and adults with its unforgettable blend of laughter, magic and mischief. It is a hot summer afternoon when Alice spies a white rabbit hurrying across the riverbanks. "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" he cries, glancing at a watch drawn from his waist-coat pocket. Of course, Alice has never seen a rabbit wear a waist-coat or a watch before. Curious, she follows the creature-and plunges down a rabbit hole into a strange and unforgettable world.

"Narrator Davina Porter's delivery is ideal--her voice conveys a wide range of emotion, wordplay works perfectly, and her portrayal of Alice's thought processes gives listeners a real feeling for her adventures. The talking animals sound just as they should: The mock turtle is slow and deliberate, the pigeon coos his words with an English accent, and the caterpillar is haughty. Porter's singing ability adds to the fun, and Alice's recitation of poetry sounds just like a young girl's voice. The perfect way to meet Alice in her Wonderland.
