I love to find books from 'my era'! This book has an inscription,
"To Helen from Mother and Daddy, Christmas 1956"! PERFECT!
And here it is.......

"Alice in Wonderland"

Tweedledee smiled gently,

The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:

He did his very best to make

The billows smooth and bright-

And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,

Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there

After the day was done-
"It's very rude of him," she said,

"To come and spoil the fun!"

Alice in Wonderland By Lewis Carrol

And be sure to visit "the fabled needle" this week for a SUPER drawing! Thanks jen!!!
