The Jub Jub Bird

Byatt on Alice In Wonderland

It goes without saying, given the name of this blog and my love for all things Tim Burton, that I’m looking forward to the new Alice Film.

In anticipation, A S Byatt – author of the Children’s Book (reviewed here) and another Jub Jub favourite – has written a long piece for the Guardian, discussing Alice and various other children’s favourites from the late Victorian period. There’s plenty to chew on and much overlap with the Children’s Book itself but too much to take in on one reading. A must read though.
