Wonderland Revisited

Wonderland Revisited
June 24, 2012 12 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

Down through a rabbit hole she fell and was led on quite a chase.

From a disappearing smiling cat to a mad hatter, growing big and shrinking small, she almost lost her head.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The weekend challenge was to rewrite our favorite stories in 33 words. I have many favorites, but Alice is the first to come to mind.

I welcome and appreciate feedback. Please feel free to leave your thoughts in a comment.

Thanks for stopping in!!

      Why thank you. It did come through somewhat poetically in my head.

    Yes, I liked the *bounciness* of this retelling – I think it reflects the technicolour feel of Carroll’s original…

    perfect last line

    this was a classic retelling not summary. We saw Alice and those characters at Disney. AIW is totally different to adults than to children. I think Jefferson Airplane’s White Rabbit and acid trips. My kids see weird cartoon characters.

    well done

      I really need to go to Disney one day. The newest Alice with Johnny Depp is what comes to my mind but its mosly how vivid and colorful Carroll’s imagination was that makes this my favoritte story.
