About the Book

One of the most popular and most quoted books in English, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was the creation of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), a distinguished scholar, mathematician and author who wrote under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. Written for young readers but enjoyed equally by adults, the fantastic tale transformed children's literature, liberating it from didactic constraints.

The story is deeply but gently satiric, enlivened with an imaginative plot and brilliant use of nonsense, as it relates Alice's adventures in a bizarre, topsy-turvey land underground. There she encounters a cast of strange characters and fanciful beasts, including the White Rabbit, March Hare, and Mad Hatter, the sleepy Dormouse and grinning Cheshire Cat,the Mock Turtle, the dreadful Queen of Hearts, and unusual creatures.
