About the book"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) was published in 1865. It is a novel written by English author Lewis Carroll. Carroll's tale plays with logic, which gives the story lasting popularity among adults and children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the so-called literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential, especially in the fantasy genre. The novel has inspired numerous film and television adaptations. There has even been a Disney movie. Moreover, there have been comic book adaptations as well as musical plays describing Alice's adventures in Wonderland.
Note: In the English original, there are some references to English nursery rhymes as well as many English wordplays. These have been replaced by German poems and wordplays in the German translation. Also, at some points, the German translation differs in content.
