Alicens Abenteuer im Wunderland.

Translated into German by Franz Sester.

Illustrated by Charlotte Strech-Ballot.

Düsseldorf: Drei Eulen Verlag, 1949.


Sester’s translation is very free indeed. For example, Alice is a German school girl studying English. In place of the Mouse’s history lesson one finds the story of Little Red Riding Hood. There is also a long section in which Alice explains the rules of croquet to a soldier, who complains that the pig-baby spits on him when he babysits it.
