New Adventures of Alice

Probably you, like myself, have often wished that Lewis Carroll might have found time to write another book about "Alice". Certainly most of the children who have delightedly followed her through "Wonderland" and the "Looking Glass" country have sighed regretfully when Mother finished reading the last chapter to them.

After reading the marvelous tale for perhaps the tenth t

Pretty good! Not quite Lewis Carol quality, but entertaining none the less.
