BORN 1896

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.
