Cul de Sac by Richard Thompson for January 22, 2012
Mom: "Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting." Alice: Who is that in the party dress? Mom: That's Alice! Alice: Is she going to a party? Alice: No, she's going to fall down a rabbit hole. Alice: Is that the rabbit? Mom: Yes. Alice: Does she land on him? Mom: No, she falls down the rabbit hole and has all kinds of adventures. Alice: Let's see! Mom: Alice! Please don't grab things! Alice: But look at how she's stretching that dress outta shape! Mom: Okay, we'll read something you know - "Little Oopsie and the Enchanted Sippy Cup." Alice: Who wears a party dress to fall in a rabbit hole anyway?
Stick with Alice in Wonderland, Mom! It’s so much richer than any Little Oopsie babyish misadventure: expand your Alice’s horizons with Lewis Carroll’s Alice!
