Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (often shortened to Alice in Wonderland) was written in 1865 by English mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under his pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice who falls through a rabbit hole and into a surreal world populated by odd creatures and strange individuals. The story plays with logic, which gives it a lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the genre of literary nonsense and its narrative course and structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in popular culture and literature. This edition includes 42 illustrations by Peter Newell.
