Reading "Alice in Wonderland" as an adult is quite a different experience from reading it as a child. Each in their own way delights. As a child I saw the wonder in it and now I saw the cleverness. Some of the statements which may have seemed like nonsense were actually great examples of logic. For example, when the March Hare asks Alice to "take some more tea," she is offended. "I've had nothing yet, so I can't take more." to this the Hatter retorts, "You mean you can't take LESS.; It's very easy to take more than nothing." The book is full of such statements which make for excellent reading.
