Publisher's Summary

Alice begins her fantastic journey by following an unprecedented White Rabbit with a pocket watch. While in the topsy turvy world of Wonderland, Alice takes advice from a caterpillar and attends a mad tea party. She meets the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon, and participates in a ludicrous courtroom scene. Each character has its own charming voice, as B. J. Harrison delivers one of his most whimsical performances.

A classic read poorly

Alice is one of the great classics of children's literature but I cannot recommend this version. The narrator is wildly over-emphatic - listen how WHACKY and ZANY this is - and appears to be pitching this subtle satire, written by an Oxford don, at the under fives. It's very easy to spoil humour by trying too hard to make it funny instead of just letting the jokes emerge naturally which is what happens here.
Very disappointed.
Possibly this is one of those cases where a book is seen differently on each side of the Atlantic and this is how the USA perceives the book: in which case I'd love to hear a UK English version: Stephen Fry or Alan Bennett could do the text justice and give it some subtlety.
