There are many versions of Lewis Carroll's novel and this version was not one I would recommend for children. While Jim Dale is a wonderful reader/narrator it did not quite match the surreal quality of the writing.
I never really read this as a child, but of course know the movie well. This is a relatively short listen and I was interested to see how closely the movies match the book. I always enjoy listening to Jim Dale. He is good at evoking whimsy.
I LOVE to listen to Jim Dale but even he could not save this book. Hoped this would be a big hit with a mixed age group on a road trip. No one between ages 3-71 got into book and asked to move on after 20 minuntes.
