Little, Big

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.

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 ( finds that Alice in Wonderland is the tenth “best” children’s book “of all time.”

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. There is also an Alice-lookalike in Tonner’s “Kickits” collection, titled “Hunting Rabbit.”

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.
