Presented here are four of the most popular children's books of all time: Kenneth Grahame's "The Wind in the Willows," Margery Williams' "The Velveteen Rabbit" and Lewis Carroll's "The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Lookingglass."
First, Kenneth Grahame's classic "The Wind in the Willows," one of the most beloved and admired novels of children's literature. The story follows the adventures of the mild-mannered Mole and his friend Rat, who emerge from their winter's slumber to explore the Springtime world, encountering the sedate and businesslike Badger as well as the wild and impulsive Mr. Toad of Toad Hall, who cannot seem to avoid mishaps and run-ins with the police.
Next, Margery Williams Bianco's revered children's story of a stuffed rabbit who longs to be real, "The Velveteen Rabbit" has been one of the world's most beloved children's books for the past 100 years. Chosen as one of the "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children," this volume features illustrations by the original artist for the book, William Nicholson. Adapted over the years many times for stage, screen and television, The Velveteen Rabbit is a timeless tale of love, loss, friendship and what it means to triumph over adversity.
And finally, Lewis Carroll's classic duo of nonsense and imagination, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Lookingglass," books that were immediate sensations upon publication. Both books relate the story of Alice, a young girl who tumbles down a rabbit hole into a world filled with talking rabbits, grinning cats, mad hatters and vengeful queens and, in Book Two, her trip through a mirror into another, magical world. Long hailed as one of the greatest children's book series ever created, "Alice" has permeated the culture. The subject of dozens of adaptations, re-tellings, films and stage productions, here are two of the most treasured works of fiction in the English language.
