Alice in Wonderland, the story of a girl who drinks magic potions and does battle a with few pairs of irritating siblings, has now been translated into seven rare languages: Hawaiian, Borain Picard, Lingua Franca Nova, Esperanto, Mennonite Low German, Jèrriais, and Ulster Scots. Hopefully the translations will inspire some interest in these less common languages, but in any case, it's a fitting tribute for the author who wrote entire passages in an invented language.

See more details on the Lewis Carroll Society of North America. All translations are available on Amazon for about $16, and through the following links:
