About the Author

Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), born in Cheshire, England, who became a lecturer in Mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. In 1862, on a boating picnic, Carroll made up a story to tell a group of children, among them the eleven-year-old daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, Alice Liddell. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was published three years later and became a publishing sensation, beloved by children and adults alike. Carroll soon began to work on another book featuring his inquisitive young heroine and based on the idea of a chess game. Alice Through the Looking-Glass was published in 1871. Robert Ingpen has designed, illustrated, and written more than 100 published works of fiction and nonfiction, among them The Jungle Book and the centenary edition of Peter Pan and Wendy. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children's literature.

Reviews

"Lewis Carroll, we could say, created the whole of children's literature with these wonderful stories. Placing a child at the centre of a narrative that was entirely free of instruction, entirely devoted to delight, was a stroke of genius. The Alices are the greatest nonsense ever written, and far greater, in my view, than most sense."--Philip Pullman, author, His Dark Materials trilogy
