Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has delighted and entranced children for over a hundred years. Lewis Carroll was the pen-name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Born in 1832, he studied at Christ Church College, Oxford where he became a mathematics lecturer. The Alice stories were originally written for Alice Liddell, the daughter of the dean of his college.
A timeless children’s book, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is 150 years old in 2015. Macmillan Children’s Books has produced a range of beautiful new editions of the book for all ages and occasions.
Lewis Carroll describes them as little men “looking so exactly like a couple of great [big] schoolboys.” Tenniel drew them as round as a pair of Christmas Puddings.
Saturday 4th July is Alice’s Day, a yearly celebration of Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland, but this year is extra special because it is 150 years since the book was first written!
