Well, let’s have the big news first instead: The next LCSNA meeting will be in Washington, D.C. at the end of April, and all are welcome. More info here: www.lewiscarroll.org/meeting/2008spring/Spring08.pdf.
As for little, here’s a few more bits and pieces of catch-up.
A survey of 400,000 people (though not specifically children) by Britain’s Booktrust (www.booktrust.org.uk) finds that Alice in Wonderland is the tenth “best” children’s book “of all time.” www.booktrust.org.uk/show/feature/Home/Booktrust-news
At the recent toy fair in NYC, Tonner Dolls showed off the latest from the Alice collection, including, strangely enough, the Queens of Diamonds, Clubs, and Spades:

And slightly late for those of you in the U.K. crowd, child heroes including Alice and Peter Pan make an appearance in “The Worlds of Fantasy,” a three-part series starting on Wednesday 27th February (tonight), BBC4, at 9 p.m. with probable repeats.
