Reading, speech, Q&A

Seven-year-old Alice falls down a rabbit hole – and pops up in a world full of talking animals and magical scenery. Like in a fever dream, Alice, driven by her curiosity, experiences a surreal adventure. The classic children’s book by Lewis Carroll from 1865 still manages to delight young and old after more than 150 years. At the same time, the fabulous characters and humorous quips have long become pop culture references whose spell never loses its grip.
