The Cheshire Cat

The Cat only grinned when it saw Alice.
It looked goodnatured, she thought:
still it had very long claws and a great
many teeth...
Postcard sent by John (the UK).

It belongs to the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland illustrated by John Tenniel (1820-1914), like some postcards I have received. Also the Cheshire Cat is a protagonist of a lot of them. But I have been particularly happy to receive these two versions of the same illustration:

I wish you wouldn't keep appearing and vanishing so suddenly:
you make one quiete giddy!

And a radically different version, sent by Eutrapèlia (the USA)! It was made of chocolate packaging:


  1. Nice to see the different versions!

  2. Im so fond of The original illustrations.

    1. Oh, me too. But, like Heleen, I like to see the different versions.

  3. Hahah It's so funny!


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
