Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Version 7)

Read by Craig Franklin

(4.8 stars; 125 reviews)

Alice’s adventures in Wonderland is probably one of the most well known and popular children's novels in the English language. Written in 1865 by Charles Lutwidge Dodgeson, better known by his pen name ‘Lewis Carrol’. Lewis, a mathematician, poet, photographer and inventor, tells a surreal fantasy tale, of Alice, who visits a world of unnatural logic after following a very smart White Rabbit, down a rabbit hole. The world she discovers is inhabited by the strangest and most endearing characters; The ‘Mad Hatter’, the sleepy ‘Dormouse’, the ‘Queen of Hearts’ and many more.

Every child should insist that this story is read to them! And they will remember it for ever, just like Alice.

This book was originally illustrated by Sir John Tenniel. His images are iconic and help to seed the imagination of any little person, no matter how big they are!

This is among the finest LibriVox recordings I’ve heard. Craig Franklin’s reading is full of lively humour and memorable characters that bring Wonderland to life. Without a doubt the best of the many versions, and one that i will listen to again with great pleasure .

Wonderful reader!

Craig Franklin has a distinctive voice for each character. He really makes them come alive. You can hear Alice's "little girl" voice, and the rich fruity tones of the king on his throne, and the irate voice of the queen ordering executions. I really love this book, and I have listened to other readers, some of whom were quite good. But Craig Franklin stands above them all in using an amazing variety of voices to bring the book to life.

My 9--year old daughter enjoyed it
