Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland comes to theaters March 5th - in this story we get to find out what happens when Alice, now 19, returns to the nonsensically fascinating world she discovered as a young girl. Charles Dodgson, who we know better as Lewis Carroll, created Wonderland and all its madcap inhabitants to entertain the three Liddell girls during an afternoon row down the river Thames in 1863. One of the girls, Alice (shockingly enough) loved the story so much she asked the Reverend Dodgson to write it down for her. Luckily for little Alice, and the rest of the reading world, he did just that. Both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland ($13) and Through the Looking Glass ($5) are lyrical and unique literary romps worth the trip down the rabbit hole. Editor's Note: Both books include the original illustrations by John Tenniel.
