Der an gweder-mires gans Lewis Carroll

You can get this for the Kindle from Amazon. It's Alice through the Looking Glass in Cornish. Just search for 'der an gweder mires'. I got it a week ago and once I got into it I couldn't put it down. THe Cornish is just like the Cornish you learn in class (and I'm not talking about spelling!!). It's worth getting just for the translation of the Walrus and the Carpenter which is bryntin!

I've just discovered that you can get this as a paperback on Amazon. It's been published with Ray Edwards wonderful translation of Alice in Wonderland, so you get two books for the price of one. It's nice to see Ray's book properly published because my old copy is falling to pieces and as far as I can tell this new book has the original drawings in it so I'm going to get a copy even though I've already got Der An Gweder Mires on my kindle. I bet Ray would be pleased to see his Alice being made available again. I'll try to put an Amazon link in at the bottom but if that fails you can just search in Amazon for Der an Gweder Mires and it will find it. Ass ov vy lowen.
