Golden Globe nominee Scarlett Johansson (Lost in Translation, Girl with a Pearl Earring) brings a palpable sense of joy and exuberance to her performance of Lewis Carroll's enduring classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The young and imaginative Alice grows weary of her storybook, one "without pictures or conversations", and follows a hasty hare underground - to come face to face with a host of strange and fantastic characters.
"Oh My Ears and Whiskers, What A Delight!"
Since the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1865 and Through the Looking Glass six years later, Lewis Carroll’s nonsensical tales have delighted the world with wildly imaginative and unforgettable journeys. While charming children with a heroine who represents their own feelings about growing up, the Alice stories are also appreciated by adults as a gentle satire on education, politics, literature, and Victorian life in general.
"Wonderful Book, Wonderful Performance"
Charles Lutwidge Dodson, a professor of mathematics at Magdalen (Maudlin) College, Oxford, originally wrote these charming children's stories for young Alice, the daughter of his friend, Henry George Liddell, the dean of Christ Church. After publication, these children's books rapidly became popular with adults because of the extraordinary mixture of rationalism and fantasy, irony, and absurdity viewed through the looking glass of a child's dreams.
"Audio editing is horrible or non-existant"
Down, Down the rabbit-hole Alice falls. On a childish trip to find the time-cautious white rabbit.Carroll tells the story of Alice who travels down into a fantasy world populated by anthropomorphic creatures.The tale is filled with allusions to Carroll's friends (and enemies), and the lessons that all good schoolchildren were expected to memorize. Carroll plays with logic in ways that have given his story lasting popularity to all ages. It is considered to be the characteristic example of literary nonsense.
All the delightful and bizarre inhabitants of Wonderland are here: the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat, the hooka-smoking Caterpillar and the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Ugly Duchess... and, of course, Alice herself - growing alternately taller and smaller, attending demented tea parties and eccentric croquet games, and observing everything with clarity and rational amazement.

"A Match Made in Audio Book Heaven"
Alice is bored while sitting with her older sister, who is reading a book that "had no pictures or conversations in it". Alice takes interest in a passing white rabbit that is dressed in a waistcoat and muttering, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" She follows the rabbit down a rabbit hole, then finds herself falling down into a dreamlike world, where she has several adventures.
With his marvelous sense of the absurd, Lewis Carroll's whimsical, fantastical tale delighted children and adults when it was first published in 1865 and has since become a treasured classic of literature.

As if that weren't enough, Alice often grows as tall as a house or shrinks to 3 inches. This classic story has delighted children and adults for generations.
"Great Continuing Bedtime Story"
Alice begins her fantastic journey by following an unprecedented White Rabbit with a pocket watch. While in the topsy turvy world of Wonderland, Alice takes advice from a caterpillar and attends a mad tea party. She meets the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon, and participates in a ludicrous courtroom scene. Each character has its own charming voice, as B. J.

Es la historia de un mágico sueño. Mientras permanece sentada con su hermana en el bosque, Alicia se levanta y persigue a un conejo que se le ha aparecido. De pronto cae, en la madriguera, en medio de un montón de hojas secas. Comienza a caminar por una sala subterránea y encuentra alimentos bebidas, que consume.
