The BBC ran a poll, and they found that most people don’t lie about having read “War and Peace.”
[The] children’s favourite Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll is responsible for the most literary fibs, according to a BBC survey.
Weird, huh? Personally, I think I may have lied once or twice about reading all of “Gravity’s Rainbow.”
Also, just so you know, Carroll published a children’s version of the book called “The Nursery Alice.” The chapters run about 750 words or so, and the narrative is perfect for little ears.
