In this unique approach to the 'Alice' phenomenon of Lewis Carroll, the author makes clear that far from being just an entertaining children's book, the "Wonderland Adventures" are more complex and deeply reflective of Lewis Carroll's character. By making the effort to understand the deeper layers, both children and adults can profit from the master tale by learning to think better and also to have fun.
