Celebrating both Going Public and World Read Aloud Day (earlier in the week)
The Lobster Quadrille (from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), by Lewis Carroll
Read by Xe Sands
For World Read Aloud Day, I wanted to return to a children’s story, but just couldn’t find one that felt right. But then I remembered the delightful poem, The Lobster Quadrille, and the wonderful songs written for the 1999 television version of Alice, and couldn’t resist. You see, my daughter fell in love with that version when she was very young and we’ve been singing The Lobster Quadrille a la Gene Wilder ever since.
