Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (version 3)
"Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do ..." .. and from that moment onward we drift with Alice into another world. When she sees a White Rabbit as it runs through the tall grass (looking worriedly at the watch it takes from its waist-coat pocket), she runs after it and drops into a strange dream. The world is full of chatty animals, from a rather stand-offish hookah-smoking caterpillar to the friendly Cheshire Cat which only sometimes goes to the bother of having a body. And everyone seems to be ordering her about ... or telling her to recite poetry! ... and all those verses that she once knew so well seem strangely distorted.
In this book and in "Through the Looking Glass", Lewis Carroll affectionately brought together many of the wonderful stories he told to Alice and her sisters on long summer boating trips. (Summary by Peter Yearsley)

I listen every night to help me fall asleep. The calming voice allows me to listen to the story without keeping me so intune that I can't fall asleep. With chronic insomnia this has been a LIFE SAVER! The story allows me to "turn off" my mind and calm down enough to actually fall asleep in a decent amount of time :)
I love his voice! I find his charming accent perfect for the telling of Alice and her adventures. Without missing a beat, he seamlessly weaves Wonderland into being in one's head. My son and I thoroughly enjoy this version the very best! Repeatedly. I think we are up to our fifth listen so far. He goes beyond reading, it's like he is acting it out for you. Everything is flawless, the intonation, the impressions of characters, just PERFECT all around!
Awesome Reader - WonderKrazyFull Story
Beginning in a small wood just outside her home Allice follows a talking rabbit down a hole into a crazy wonderland. From Alliceâs incessantly extreme shrinking and growing spurts; to the fantastically queer behavior of animals who could talk , I dare say that this may have been the oddest composition that I have yet encountered and yet I heartily believe that the whole mess could have been even , if the elements were so inclined . All in all, the insane and incoherent content of this book truly made me laugh and I will therefore recommend this story to the chipper reader.
Alice has a vary lucid dream or nightmare.
well read.great soothing narration.good background noise. Alice has a dream in which she talks to anthrophomorphic creatures , changes size and get into general mischief .Alice is a lot of fun to listen to as her tale meanders and changes drastically keeping the listener surprised and amused. Some passages dragged on a bit for example the mock turtle but the narrator did sing the songs which was a nice touch albeit somewhat annoying.
I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!! BEST BOOK EVAH!!!! This book was actually my fave story when I was a little girl. Now look at me still short and almost 13 years old. WOW, THAT WAS SUCH A LONG TIME A GO!!!! I'M GETTING SO OLD!!!! LOL!!!!
Peter does an absolutely brilliant job of narrating this children's classic. I listen to it while falling off to sleep each night. Peter's voice is clear and calm, like the best father in the world, telling bedtime stories to the children he loves.
I loved the variety of voices by peter. His voice is cristal clear. it really made the page pop busting of life. especially reading the definite edition that includes pictures!! I recommend it to everyone!! I'm off to read the sequel, hopefully a version narrated by Peter Yearsley
Wonderful reader. Delightful story
This is a timeless story that is childish, imaginative, at times confusing, but a definite "must listen" (especially if you have only short spurts of time to listen). I think the reader brought this story to life with how he read the poems/rhymes and even sings a little! Even though I just listened to it, I already want to listen to it again!
