You might wonder how it all got started--

Charles Dodgeson taught mathematics at Oxford University in England. The Dean of the College had three daughters, Lorina, Alice and Edith.

One sunny day , Mr. Dodgeson and Reverand Robinson Duckworth took the three children on a boat ride. Alice, then 10 years old, asked Mr. Dodgeson to tell them a story.

Mr. Dodgeson loved telling stories.

He made up a story about a little girl named Alice
who followed a rabbit down a rabbit hole.




Alice asked Mr. Dodgeson to write the story down for her, which he did.



Later on, Charles Dodgeson made the story longer,and had it published in 1865 .

The story had a new title:Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Charles Dodgeson used the name Lewis Carroll.


Alice met many strange characters in Wonderland, including the Mad Hatter and the Dodo. And of course, there was the scary Queen of Hearts.
