My favourite two books of all time would have to be Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll. They’re defiantly two of the old classics, and they’re filled with references that no longer conjure the absurdities in people they once did. Still I find myself reading these novels over and over, they were the first books I ever read to myself and I’ve never fallen out of love with them since.

While I’ve been aware of the rumour for a while now, I’ve only just recently been made aware that Tim Burton has actually begun filming his adaption of the first novel. It’s set to release in 2010, and contains both live-action and animated components, with Johnny Depp naturally making an appearance as the Mad Hatter. Needless to say that this could be the fusion of two wonders, and the Nightmare Before Christmas has serious competition for the honor of being my all time favourite.
