When Alice tumbles down, down, down a rabbit-hole one hot summer's afternoo n in pursuit of a White Rabbit she finds herself in Wonderland. And there b egin the fantastical adventures that will see her experiencing extraordinar y changes in size, swimming in a pool of her own tears and attending the ve ry maddest of tea parties. For Wonderland is no ordinary place and the char acters that populate it are quite unlike anybody young Alice has ever met b efore. In this imaginary land she encounters the savagely violent Queen, th e Lachrymose Mock Turtle, the laconic Cheshire Cat and the hookah-smoking C aterpillar, each as surprising and outlandish as the next. Alice's adventur es have made her the stuff of legend, the child heroine par excellence, and ensured that Carroll's book is the best loved and most widely read in chil dren's literature.

His most famous works are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), its sequel Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There (1871) and The Hunting o.
