    But are you really pro life? asked Alice Because you know I've heard pro life people talk before and they sound uite different When I use a word Trumpty Drumpty said in rather a scornful tone it means just what I choose it to mean — neither nor lessThe uestion is said Alice whether you can make words mean so many different thingsThe uestion is said Trumpty Drumpty which is to be master — that's allAlice was too puzzled to reply to this so she thought she had better change the subjectThat is a fine wall Mr Drumpty she said after a while It must have cost you a great deal to build itIt cost me nothing said Trumpty Drumpty off handedly Every single cent of it came from my friends in MexicoThey must be very good friends said Alice politelyNot in the least said Trumpty Drumpty But they had no choice you see First I sent back all the illegal immigrants; and then I said that if the Mexican government didn't pay for my wall I'd stop those immigrants from wiring any money homeBut if you had sent them back said Alice who was now feeling even puzzled then how—You ask too many uestions young lady snapped Trumpty Drumpty This interview is now over Nothing is going right today Alice said to herself Oh how I wish I hadn't taken that job with Fox News

    can't reread one without the other It’s not fair that I have to review this bookI mean no one is making me Technically speaking I am in no way obligated to review this But also in a much real important way because I am the one saying it I absolutely mustBecause I love this book so goddamn muchBUT HOW AM I POSSIBLY EXPECTED TO PUT THAT LOVE INTO WORDSThere’s only one way to do itBy cheatingRead my review of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland so you understand the immensity of my love for these books which I kind of count as one book spiritually and only don’t actually count as one book for reading challenge purposesBut you still won’t really know how much I love these books so you should probably read me scream about it in my review of The Annotated Alice And Alice's Adventures Under Ground for good measureAnd also you should read all of Shakespeare’s love sonnets and the great love letters of history and the collected works of Jane Austen You should watch the bird scene from The Notebook and the sad part from Titanic and the scene in Say Anything when John Cusack holds the boombox over his headAll of those viewings are just to have a good laugh though And also to jam the fck out to In Your Eyes a musical treasure To reallyyyy understand you should watch Booksmart and Safety Not Guaranteed and Mamma Mia 2 Here We Go AgainPerhaps through all of these reviews and readings and viewings you can gain a passing understanding of how much I love AliceProbably not thoughBottom line I HAVE TOO MUCH LOVE IN MY HEART review i didn't write in 2016 to come

    Goodreads having eaten my first review of this book I need to hastily rewrite another Basically Alice in Wonderland is the superior book but not by much Book 2 is proof that Lewis Carroll can make lightning strike twiceIn book 2 Alice finds herself through her mirror and interacts with the kingly chess pieces She goes out into the garden not easily due to navigational problems No wonder everything she achieves in that place is seen as a victoryThe characters in book 2 are not as memorable as Alice in Wonderland Yet these two books are nearly part of folklore now The half baked movie adaptations show how difficult is it to imitate genius Let every child and adult revel in the untouched and pristine classics that is Alice

    I think that the failure not only of Children's Literature as a whole but of our very concept of children and the child's mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind Children are first protected from their culture kept remote and safe and then they are thrust incongruously into a world that they have been told is unsafe and unsavory; and we expected them not to blanchIt has been my policy that the best literature for children is not a trifling thing not a simplification of the adult or a sillier take on the world Good Children's literature is some of the most difficult literature to write because one must challenge engage please and awe a mind without resorting to archetypes or life experienceOnce a body grows old enough we are all saddened by the thought of a breakup We have a set of knowledge and memories The pain returns to the surface Children are not born with these understandings so to make them understand pain fear and loss is no trivial thing The education of children is the transformation of an erratic and hedonistic little beast into a creature with a rational method by which to judge the worldA child must be taught not to fear monsters but to fear instead electrical outlets pink slips poor people and lack of social acceptance The former is frightening in and of itself the latter for complex internal reasons I think the real reason that culture often fears sexuality and violence in children is because they are such natural urges We fear to trigger them because we cannot control the little beasts We cannot watch them every minuteSo to write Children's Literature an author must create something complex and challenging something that the child can turn over in their mind without accidentally revealing some terrible aspect of the world that the child is not yet capable of dealing with Carroll did this by basing his fantasies off of complex impersonal structures linguistics and mathematical theory These things have all the ambiguity uncertainty and structure of the grown up world without the messy human partsThis is also why the Alice stories fulfill another reuirement I have for Children's Lit that it be just as intriguing and rewarding for adults There is no need to limit the depth in books for children because each reader will come away with whatever they are capable of finding Fill an attic with treasures and the child who enters it may find any number of things put a single coin in a room and you ensure that the child will find it but nothing Of course we must remember that nothing we can write will ever be strange or disturbing to a child than the pure unadulterated world that we will always have failed to prepare them for However perhaps we can fail a little less and give them Alice Not all outlets are to be feared despite what your parents taught you In fact some should be prodded with regularity and if you dare not a little joy

    Finished Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and plunged Through the Looking Glass At first while it was enjoyable not much seemed new about Alice’s continued adventures However Carroll’s inventive evocative and fun use of language takes over and turns this into a different kind of adventure Even if you haven’t read this one before I count myself in this number you should find that you’re familiar with the basic elements of the story Alice’s adventures through a landscape drawn up as a chessboard and characters including the Red ueen White ueen Humpty Dumpty Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the Jabberwock I don’t think this uite matches the first adventure but reading it is time well spent 35 stars rounded up “Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast”

    Life what is it but a dream? I had guessed that this story would also take place in dream And surprisingly I was rightyay Just like Alice In The Wonderland I couldn't connect with this book also Writing was dull Just like the last book But this book did make an improvement in adventures Those were faaar better than Alice in the Wonderland I liked the concept of Chess game I liked the World of Looking Glass But I think Wonderland was little better This was also great Don't know but I liked Wonderland Or for my problems regarding this book have only one answer Classic This book is written in 1800s So this fact should be kept in mind while reading That's why no matter how much I would say that would be useless Regardless if you are looking forward to read this series so do it Don't be discouraged by my reviews of this series Maybe you would like this series than I didJanuary 30 2017
