Following the success with his Klingon translation of the classic tale "The Little Prince" in 2018, Klingon Teacher Lieven L. Litaer decided to publish a Klingon version of the beloved children's book "Alice in Wonderland" written by Lewis Carroll.
The book was heavily featured as an inspiration for the fictional main character of Captain Michael Burnham on the hit-series "Star Trek: Discovery" and quoted on several occasions. A few parts from the book were even translated into Klingon in the subtitles on Netflix.
Enjoy this stunning story in Klingon, including a new English back-translation!
