Storybook heroes No 11: Alice In Wonderland
Meet the brilliant fictional characters who have become timeless classics in the world of children's books
Defining moment "Alice was considering whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit ran close by her."
Why we love Alice
* She's feisty, opinionated, and very, very curious – plus, all fashion credit to her for inventing the Alice band!
* The cast of eccentric characters is inspired from the eternally tardy White Rabbit to the pot-smoking Caterpillar and the obnoxious Duchess.
* The sheer brilliance of Lewis Carroll's storytelling, which celebrates the power of a child's imagination.
* The vivid text trips along with its witty riddles, play on words and outrageously surreal characters and twists. Disney also added his animated touch to the magical retelling.
