A bit of fun trivia

Well the other day on here talk of the new Alice in Wonderland movie was a buzz. And I learned something I didn't know...and that was there is 2 parts of the story.

So here is the question: How many parts are there to the Alice in Wonderland storyline and can you name them?

Aren't they Alice in Wonderland and Throw the LookingGlass. ????

Yep, but characters from both books are incorporated in the Disney film (ie, Dee and Dum were in "Through the Looking Glass"). I haven't read either book (bad me) but I can quote "Jabberwocky" and "The Walrus and the Carpenter" word for word. All I can say is Mr Carroll had a good imagination or was taking some really good drugs!

It is actually a Political satire. Not saying he was not on drugs, but I have always seen it as a satire to the British Government.

Oh, I agree completely that most of it is a political satire, but Jabberwocky is just out there somewhere! I mean, what exactly are "slithy toves"? LOL! I love it, but you have to admit, that poem is a little wierd!

All of his stuff is alittle weird, but it was the 1800's. I think opium is the "inspiration" to his stories.

There was a cool science fiction story written about Jabberwocky, and how some kids started to understand it, which opened a portal to a new world.

LOL, as I said, good drugs! I always thought Carroll was the "lighter" side of Edgar Allen Poe.

The answer is there was a third Alice:

Alice's Adventures Under Ground
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_Carroll#Alice

Its short and only a few pages long.

I THOUGHT there was a third one, but for some reason I thought it wasn't written by Carroll. Ok, so there's 3 I haven't read. You tricked us (you said 2 parts...grrrrr...).

Well as of yesterday before I went and checked out this book I only thought there was 2. Thats all we talked about on here that day.

So seeing hows I never read the first one and never knew of the second I went on a search. I went to my college library and we did have a small selection of kid books we did not have that one. So I just went walking around the library and a book of Lewis Carroll's works was on the shelf. And in there was all 3 Alices and a few others.

I don't think the third was ever a stand alone book. Its like 5 pages or less.
