In July of 1862, Lewis Carroll , a pseudonym for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, breathed life into a long story told to a young child named Alice Liddell and her sisters while they spent time together at a picnic. Fascinated by the tale, the young Alice implored Carroll to write it down, and the basis for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (now often referred to in it's abbreviated form Alice in Wonderland) was written. Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There was a sequel which quickly followed.
This shy logician & mathematician turned novelist gave Victorians instant children's literature classics which have now become beloved by children and adults worldwide. Carroll used the surrealistic settings of his fantasy world to question the commonly accepted ways of thinking. These stories have fascinated generations, giving rise to inspiration for artists, musicians, political essayists and authors in nearly every culture.

`The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts, All on a summer day: The Knave of Hearts, he stole those tarts, And took them quite away!' ....." CHAPTER 11
