While the Phantom Tollbooth is my favourite book of all time, a close second is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (as well as Through the Looking Glass). A long time ago, people would buy me Alice memorabilia and copies of the books. And then this stopped with the exception of a copy of Helen Oxenbury's illustrations that I bought for myself several years ago.
The guinea pigs, just because guinea pigs are a hot topic in our home right now and Josh lives in fear of the day that he comes home and finds one happily living in our guest room.
I just loved the way Oxenbury captured Alice's grief with this drawing. Don't you feel that way some days?
My brother asked me today what I wanted as a belated birthday gift. I want to bring back the Alice. I am asking for one of three copies: illustrations by Lisbeth Zwerger, Alison Jay, or Mauro Evangelista. Aren't they incredible?
What are you showing today?

- If you would like to join circle time and show something to the class, simply post each Sunday (or earlier in the weekend or on Monday if you can't do Sunday), hopefully including a picture if possible, and telling us about your item. It can be anything--a photo from a trip, a picture of the dress you bought this week, a random image from an old yearbook showing a person you miss. It doesn't need to contain a picture if you can't get a picture--you can simply tell a story about a single item.
- Label your post "Show and Tell" each week and then come back here and add the permalink in the comments section below (make sure you don't just comment that you participated: add a link to your blog in your comment so people can click over). I post a new Show and Tell post every Saturday night or Sunday. I usually move people up into the body of the post every few hours.
- Oh, and then the point is that you click through all of your classmates and see what they are showing this week.
- If you want it...
I've now placed a Show and Tell archive on the sidebar that will be updated each week in case you miss it. And click here for the icon code if you wish to have it for your blog. It links to the archives.
