The perfect companion to Lewis Carroll's classic book and directorTim Burton's March 2010 remake of Alice in Wonderland Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland has fascinated childrenand adults alike for generations. Why does Lewis Carroll introduceus to such oddities as blue caterpillars who smoke hookahs, catswhose grins remain after their heads have faded away, and a WhiteQueen who lives backwards and remembers forwards?
