THEY CREATED THE FICTIONAL CHARACTERS WE LOVED.

LEWIS CARROLL

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (writing as Lewis Carroll) told the highly imaginative story of Alice in Wonderland to three young girls while boating near Oxford, England in 1862.  The youngsters were quite enthralled by the tale and begged Dodgson to write it down. He went to work on it and in 1864 he gave a handwritten version of Alice’s story to Alice Pleasance, age 10, as a Christmas present.
