Alice in Wonderland

I have this beautiful book that has been sitting in my bookcase unread for a few years now. I love this book so much and the perfect combination of Ralph Steadman's illustrations and Lewis Carroll's prose makes it a macabre childhood fantasy. Steadman is famous for being known as a Gonzo artist through his association with Hunter S. Thompson, you should definitely check out his illustrations here.
"Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end! `I wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time?' she said aloud. `I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth. Let me see: that would be four thousand miles down, I think--' (for, you see, Alice had learnt several things of this sort in her lessons in the schoolroom, and though this was not a very good opportunity for showing off her knowledge, as there was no one to listen to her, still it was good practice to say it over) `--yes, that's about the right distance--but then I wonder what Latitude or Longitude I've got to?' (Alice had no idea what Latitude was, or Longitude either, but thought they were nice grand words to say.)"
