Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar! As you know, the other day Maggie suggested that I tell the story of Alice In Wonderland. Or as she put it, "Aventures d'Alice Au Pays Des Merveilles." I thought it was a challenge worth accepting, and had a go at it.
|"OK, um ... Aventures d'Alice Au Pays Des Merveilles ..."|
Then I realized our copy of the book is in French. I'm pretty sure I don't speak much French. I was hoping there were a lot of pictures.
The book is definitely about a girl named Alice. She goes on some kind of adventure and ...
... runs across some very different-looking characters. That bun, for instance, looked like he plays trumpet in a jazz band or something. Very odd. I continued leafing through the book:
|"GREAT DANE IN THE MORNING! Look at the size of that cat!"|
Sorry. That cat was pretty freaky, I must say. No offense to any kit-cats out there. He had this eerie grin on his face ... and his eyes follow you everywhere!
|"That can't be right. I need a better source. Maybe an audible book!"|
The whole "audible book" thing sounded like a great idea. I listened to what I was pretty sure was like the Cliffs Notes version of Alice then reported back to Mags.
|"OK, back me up here, Mom. |
Alice trips out on some whacky mushrooms or something
and runs into all these weird creatures like a hookah-smoking caterpillar,
a huge bunny, an even bigger cat,
and a queen who's all 'off with her head!'. Right?"
Mom: "Umm ... well ..."
"Have you two been listening to 60s rock again? Maybe a little Jefferson Airplane?"
|"Maybe. Right, Mom?"|
Mom: "❤️❤️ Ragnar. ❤️❤️"
I think it's close enough. And they all lived happily ever after.
