Through The Looking Glass and What Alice Found There Audiobook

Through The Looking Glass and What Alice Found There Audiobook
Written by Lewis Carroll
Read by Julia McKenzie

Star actress Julia McKenzie reads this unabridged audio book of Alice Through the Looking Glass, the second of Lewis Carroll’s whimsical tales following the character of Alice into a wild and fantastical world where nothing is as it should be and all systems of logic and reason seem to be turned upside down.

The story of how the adventures that Alice has in Wonderland came to be written, and the author’s association with the Liddell family – and Alice Liddell in particular – is now the stuff of legend. One summer afternoon in 1862, the author, in the company of the Reverend Robinson Duckworth, took the three Liddell sisters, Lorina Charlotte, Alice Pleasance and Edith Mary out in a rowing boat on the River Thames, near Oxford. On that boat trip, he entertained the girls by telling them a story about a bored little girl called Alice who goes looking for an adventure. Alice, aged 10, loved the story so much, she asked Dodgson to write it down for her.

The Water Babies Audiobook

The Water Babies Audiobook
Written by Charles Kingsley
Read by Nichola McAuliffe

There are very few children’s stories that have raised as much outrage in grown up politics as The Water Babies did when it first appeared in 1863. It was written by Charles Kingsley for his own little boy and shortly after he had been made tutor to the Prince of Wales. It seems fairly innocent at first, suggesting the gentle idea that when the poor little tykes who were used as human chimney brushes in the nineteenth century died, they were turned into water babies, small amphibious cherubs who headed off to paradise via an exciting and educational journey upstream in The Great River.

Innocent it wasn’t however, it changed minds, laws and eventually lives. Tom the young chimney sweep was responsible for more heartache amongst right thinking Victorians than any slightly wicked young chap off on an adventure has a right to be. This book is in fact a highly eloquent plea for the rights of child labourers, it also openly used the ideas of Darwin’s scandalous Theory of Evolution, and even put forward one of the earliest cries against pollution, but all this is hidden in one of the most moving and affecting children’s stories of all time.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Audiobook

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Audiobook
Written by Lewis Carroll
Read by Julia McKenzie

The Silksoundbooks audio book Alice in Wonderland, read by star actress Julia McKenzie starts with Alice on a rather unadventurous picnic...  but as her attention wanders she is suddenly brought face to face with a passing white rabbit who happens to be wearing a waistcoat and muttering to himself “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!”.

As he disappears down a rabbit hole and Alice, for want of anything better to do, follows him, she finds herself in Wonderland – a fantastical world where the characters Alice meets and the situations in which she finds herself have the whiff of symbol and allegory about them, but are much too funny to be pinned down as such.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland  is read by Julia McKenzie as an unabridged audiobook and is  perfect for children of all ages
