More than 150 years have passed since the release of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, yet the book stays as one of the best Children’s classics of all time. Unlike many books of the same genre, it appeals to both adults and children, for its creative story, unique characters and precious lessons about life. Let us find out more about the story of the 7-year-old Alice, and how her adventures stay in countless of readers’ hearts.
