Alice In Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland is the title of a famous English children’s story. It was written 150 years ago by Lewis Carroll and it describes the adventures of a little girl who falls down a rabbit hole. She discovers a strange underground fantasy world with many unusual people and animals.
The book is still as popular as ever and references to the story can be found in music, films, music videos and all forms of popular culture. Children still like to dress up as Alice in her blue dress and hair band.
To celebrate the 150th anniversary there’s a special theatre production in London. Between April and August this year visitors can go underground at London’s Waterloo Station and discover the strange world of Alice. A new Disney film is also being made.
