I was completely delighted to receive a quick message from my daughter Alice through Kat Baillie!
She referenced Lewis Carroll's book Alice In Wonderland and specifically noted an older, 1940/1950 edition with original illustrations and a hand-written inscription that would have much meaning. Moreover that I would have some slight difficulty finding the book. Straight away I thought of the Alice in Wonderland book that a friend had given to Alice on her 7th birthday.
I found it fairly easily but there was no inscription and the illustrations are by a contemporary artist. Hmmmm. Well, it took a couple of days--but I found the book! I had forgotten that my parents had given Alice the 1946 edition of Alice in Wonderland when she had just turned four years old and I certainly went down the rabbit hole searching for it!
Additionally, Alice said she is having a "magical time" and told me not to "overthink things" too much (LOL!). Also that she is always watching me...as if through a looking glass. Here is a photo of Alice back in August 2008 at the time her grandparents gifted her the lovely, classic edition of Alice in Wonderland. Thank you Kat!
