Alice's Adventures In Wonderland
by Lewis Carroll

This novel was published on 1865, written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the name of Lewis Carroll. this is a book where a girl called Alice falls down on a rabbit hole and goes to an unreal world and strange world where eating mushrooms can make her grow larger or smaller, Alice baby-sit a pig, take part in a tea party that is held hostage by time and so never ends, and engage in a game of croquet in which flamingos are used as mallets and hedgehogs as balls. She meets a number of extravagant and incredibly characters from the Cheshire Cat to a caterpillar smoking a hookah, and being decidedly contradictory. She also, famously, meets the Queen of Hearts who has a penchant for execution and this is where the novel starts to get curiouser and curioser because she's accused of stealing the Queen's tarts. A good evidence is given and a letter is produced which only refers to events by pronouns. Alice stands up for the Knave and the Queen, predictably, demands her execution. As she is fighting off the Queen’s card soldiers, Alice awakes, realizing she has been dreaming all along.
For me this novel has a lot of meanings and when i saw the movie for the first time it was confusing for me because it didnt had so much sense but then you get more and more curious with it and finally you discover it was just a "dream".
