Lewis Carroll's timeless literary classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has transcended generations to continue to be one of the most popular stories read worldwide by both children and adults. His creative talents could be seen from child hood and as a young man, while he authored many books as a mathematician at Oxford University, he also had a passion for writing poetry and fanciful stories.
Later the story was published as a book which became a worldwide bestseller and has since been translated into more than 170 languages. This was the first children's book to cast itself free from the spell of Victorian morality and not only did it become a monumental work for British children's literature,it also stimulated the creative spirit in artists in a variety of genres including art, film, theatrical performance, photography, and fashion.
