Alice in Wonderland – Sane Child, Demented Adults

Why is Alice in Wonderland so popular? There are several good reasons. First, the main character, Alice, is an ordinary girl who falls down a rabbit hole, or passes through a mirror, into peculiar places filled with odd characters. Alice represents “Everyman” (Everykid?), the sane child amongst crazy adults. It is Alice’s ordinary nature that causes us to identify with her.
